Wild Weeds
Plant Versus Rabbit

      Rabbits can do a lot of damage when it comes to plants in a garden and although rabbits prefer some plants over others, when a rabbit is hungry enough, it'll eat most anything that's green and photosynthesizes. As a result, rabbits can eat a lot of plant material in a very short period of time. In the natural environment this is not a big deal since there is a natural equilibrium maintained in most ecosystems, but when it comes to landscape plants, it is quite possible for rabbits to do hundreds of dollars worth of damage in a single night. Put another way, a small hole in a fence could cost a lot of money in terms of damaged plants. So, what is a gardener to do? Even the best designed landscaping system has potential vulnerabilities and the persistence of rabbits requires that humans be vigilent when it comes to protecting the plants in their garden or yard.

I'm a helpless plant
I cannot run away
The hungry rabbit seems to think
That I'm an entree

Listen here you hungry rabbit
Eating plants is a nasty habit

I wish that I were poisonous
I wish that I had spines
I wish I were carnivorous
On rabbits I would dine.
