“Just Because a Rabbit Isn’t Chocolate…” by F. John Sharp

Dec 20th, 2010 | By | Category: Poetry

I’ve set a trap for the Easter
bunny, made of carrot
flavored jelly beans and
a snare, outside in a bed
of tulips near a colorful
basket bearing the name
of a child. My kids
will be only slightly
disappointed there is no candy—
which we’ll buy on sale
tomorrow—but will
simply love the dinner we’re having,
which I will say is chicken.
