Poetry Month, Day 9 - Hasenpfeffer

Today's word was given to me by Liz Austin, my sort of niece!  I had only heard this word on Laverne and Shirley, in their theme song.  You can watch it here.  I wasn't sure what it meant and I was a little disturbed when I found out it's rabbit stew!! 

On the first day of each month,
the first words that I speak,
are Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit.
I know it - I'm a freak!

But really it's good luck,
well, at least it's always been.
Until one dreadful morning,
for this vegetarian!

I woke to such an odor
that wafted on the zephyr.
Imagine my disgust
when I found the hasenpfeffer!!
