#sol16 March 27 A slice of Easter

Slice of LIfe  I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March.  You should do it too!  Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing! 


Happy Easter, friends
on this chilly Easter Day
your baskets are pretty, but 
the sky is too grey

Why did the bunny 
bring all that is sweet?
chocolate, peanut butter 
so much junk to eat

I thought bunnies ate carrots
and all sorts of greens
a salad sounds great, so
why, sir, all these jelly beans?

My kids asked if I helped the bunny
I've been accused of being a rabbit!
but that's crazy talk because I know 
sugar is a super bad habit

If I were in charge of these baskets
they wouldn't be full of junk food
all the yum, all the fun isn't worth
everyone's foul sugar-crash mood

We keep eating sugar,
and I'm not to be blamed
if you see that crazy rabbit,
tell him I won't be framed!

But, if you are looking for me
I'll be making lasagne and roasted veggies
while my kids run, shout, laugh, cry and
even probably give each other wedgies 

Happy Easter dear friends
I hope your day is sweet
time to put down that basket
and have something green to eat!

  1. Fun! The idea that the Easter Bunny takes the blame for all the unhealthy food is gold. Mom is NOT being inconsistent here, kids! I also enjoy the rhyme of “veggie” with “wedgie,” and the choice of “framed” reminds me of Roger Rabbit.
