doch das Freudestrahlen ist ihm vergangen. Gott kann sich in seiner albernen Verkleidung wegen der Sense gar nicht setzen ohne was kaputt zu machen und zieht sich aus. die Knie anzieht und schüchtern die Hände auf seine Fußzehen legt. Dem Hasen fällt auf. doch er sagt das nicht. und der ist ja dann doch wirklich ne Respektsperson und bietet dem seinen einzigen Schaukelstuhl an. weil die Nägel ungeschnitten sind. der da reinkam. Bürsten mochte der Hase noch nie und jetzt erst recht nicht. der splitterfasernackt im Schaukelstuhl hockt. auch keineSitzgelegenheit.ppart1 art1 Hase Der Hase sitzt freudestrahlend im Schaukelstuhl. dass er dem Tod nicht einmal was zu trinken anbieten kann. sondern nur ein alter Mann. Der Tod hat jetzt auch genug vom Fellbürsten und sagt zumHasen: Dein Fell ist hübsch und glatt und der Hase denkt. & t t Go . ein paar Geschichten aus dem Leben zu erzählen und der Hase spitzt seine Ohren. merkt auch der Hase. Gott fängt dann an. hat ja nur den Schaukelstuhl. Als Gott dann nackt ist. dann geh doch bitte gleich wieder. weil er schließlich den Tod vor Augen und in seinem Einzimmerapartement hat. daß das gar nicht der Tod war. wo der Tod ihm das Fell bürstet. Hereinkommt Gott verkleidet als Tod und will dem Hasen das Fell bürsten.
