T’is the night before Easter, the parents unite,
To sneak down the stairs on this special spring night…
The baskets are ready, the eggs are concealed!
Well, not really hidden, they’re more “half revealed”?
With cute bunny footprints, laid out, made of card.
How big is this rabbit? I’m mentally scarred!
And soon, it is morning!
The bunny has BEEN!
The volume of chocolate is somewhat obscene!
We eye up their stash but don’t quote the amount.
We’re secretly thrilled that small offspring can’t count.
But we do NOT sneak into the cupboard all stealth,
To snaffle a few for the sake of their health!
We DON’T re-wrap eggs in a half empty box.
We will not be charged with depletion of stocks!
That big hungry rabbit!
He shall be to blame!!
“It must be the bunny!” We parents exclaim…
Now that’s all sorted, let Easter begin!
*Hastily brushes crumbed chocolate from chin*
May your Easter be choc full of eggs and delight!
…And that huge freakin’ rabbit stay well out of sight!
