the human resources department

it has come
to my attention
that you really don't like me,
and this has caused me some concern;
it makes me wonder, once again,
why humans are so slow to learn:
rabbits know instinctively,
that coyotes do not like them,
and they plan accordingly;

truth told,
I do not like you much either,
and all else being equal,
I would gladly bet you a fiver,
that the coyotes would like you no better;
and please, please, please:
try not to take any of this
