The White Rabbit by Eilidh Dalton – winner P4-P7 poetry composition

Once there was an unfinished factory rabbit

Who was always Late!

He Ran from place to place

Babbling about a date.

He took no care,

About the trouble he caused.

So the toymaker

Sent him back

To the production line

To be rewired and fixed.

Everybody applauded!
