The Easter Bunny Strike

Have you heard the Easter Bunny
Won’t be working next weekend
Cos Tooth Fairy’s rejected him
And won’t become his friend
Says he’s rotting all the teeth
Of the boys and girls per se
So Bunny’s gone into a strop
And will strike this Easter day

He’s stamped his feet and scarpered
He’s cross as cross can be
Says Tooth Fairy needs to back off
Apologise for free
For it’s not his fault that children like
His chocolate and his eggs
And if he’s blamed then he’ll stay home
To save his weary legs

And so a crisis’s pending
Whatever will we do
If no eggs get delivered in
The mad hullabaloo
For despite his moans and grumbles
It’s really clear to see
That both need to just compromise
Both Fairy and Bunny!

For let’s be honest and quite frank
There’s so much more at stake
Than teeth or bunny’s precious pride
For all the children’s sake
And more so Easter spirit
For when all is set aside
It’s really not about the eggs
But the new life that’s implied.

So sweetest Easter Bunny
Hop along now won’t you dear
Cos you can’t ransom Easter
Not at this time of year
And Tooth Fairy, please do be nice
And try not to be mean
Cos with a brush after each egg
All teeth will stay quite clean!

An Easter Message

When you wake up in the morning
And you feel a fresh new day
When you breathe in and remember
There is another way
When you think and dare to alter
The way you used to be
When you grapple with your mind’s thoughts
To use plasticity
When you push through and consider
That old means are no more
Then that’s the resurrection that
Ignites your inner core

For a pathway that’s well-trodden
That needs to deviate
And choices that one makes in life
To shift and relocate
Can be changed to make a difference
To push and surge on through
Moving boulders that reside within
And alter what you do
For rising to each challenge breaks
The mould in life and chain
For inside you, my friend, is where
You can be born again

Good Friday

I spied the Easter bunny
With a cheeky glint in eye
Foraging in the undergrowth
For Easter eggs to spy
And dressed in Easter bonnet
His Mrs stood nearby
To carry all the chocolate
To their warren near the sky

For on the far horizon
Their babies waited in
With fingers crossed and tails all bobbed
Saliva on their chin
From the thought of many Easter eggs
With sassy toothy grin
Their favourite time of year by far
As Easter could begin

And on a nest not far away
A golden hen did roost
With thoughts of other sorts of Eggs
So precious she deduced
For her eggs were all made of gold
By feelings she induced
With special ores of golden drops
That she alone produced

But nearby on that hillside
A knocking sound was heard
Of hammer onto silver nails
A sound that was absurd
A sound that froze the blood of those
Who saw the gallows bird
A man whose flawless life now hung
By virtue of his word

The word that brought new life to those
Who listened; understood
A word of faith and hope and love
Now nailed upon crossed wood
Where all the sins from all the world
Were in one act, withstood
By sacrificing innocence
And all that stands for good!

Good Friday
