dass er dem Tod nicht einmal was zu trinken anbieten kann. ein paar Geschichten aus dem Leben zu erzählen und der Hase spitzt seine Ohren. die Knie anzieht und schüchtern die Hände auf seine Fußzehen legt. wo der Tod ihm das Fell bürstet. hat ja nur den Schaukelstuhl. merkt auch der Hase. Hase & t t Go . und der ist ja dann doch wirklich ne Respektsperson und bietet dem seinen einzigen Schaukelstuhl an. daß das gar nicht der Tod war. Dem Hasen fällt auf. weil die Nägel ungeschnitten sind. Hereinkommt Gott verkleidet als Tod und will dem Hasen das Fell bürsten.part1 p art1 Der Hase sitzt freudestrahlend im Schaukelstuhl. Der Tod hat jetzt auch genug vom Fellbürsten und sagt zumHasen: Dein Fell ist hübsch und glatt und der Hase denkt. Gott kann sich in seiner albernen Verkleidung wegen der Sense gar nicht setzen ohne was kaputt zu machen und zieht sich aus. dann geh doch bitte gleich wieder. Bürsten mochte der Hase noch nie und jetzt erst recht nicht. Gott fängt dann an. doch das Freudestrahlen ist ihm vergangen. Als Gott dann nackt ist. der splitterfasernackt im Schaukelstuhl hockt. der da reinkam. doch er sagt das nicht. auch keineSitzgelegenheit. weil er schließlich den Tod vor Augen und in seinem Einzimmerapartement hat. sondern nur ein alter Mann.
