The Food Police versus the Easter bunny
No Easter Bunny came this year,
with jelly beans, colored eggs,
and chocolate bunnies
in baskets of fake green grass.

No Easter egg hunts were scheduled
in municipalities across the land,
because the food police made it known
that Peter Cottontail,
also known as Peter Rabbit
or the Easter bunny,
was persona non grata,
with a price upon his ears;
wanted for giving unhealthy
sugary and cholesterol saturated treats
to unsuspecting
and innocent children.

On Easter morning
a cry was heard
echoing across the nation
as children donned Easter bonnets
for a march on Washington.
