I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
Easter for us was no fun
We had no money and all we had was a dried old bun
There were no Easter eggs for us to find
Everyone treated the Poors so unkind
Yes, that was our name, Poor.
I am Josh Poor, married to Mazy Poor.
Who bored me a son called Tim Poor.
My little boy loved Easter, all the kids at school did
But they were well off, they ate breakfast which not we did
One day at his school they planted Easter eggs and released a bunny
The kids were supposed to catch it and make Easter funny
But I needed meat for my beans and I had no cash
So I hid in the bushes at his school and waited for the dash
The kids found the eggs and then they let the bunny loose.
It hopped and skipped from the kids with spruce
But I waited and watched as the bunny eluded them
Then it made the mistake I waited for as I clenched a stem
It hopped away and into the bushes it went
I snatched it up in a bag and escaped through a hole in the fence
I ran home swiftly
For I had caught a Easter bunny
My boy came home tired and was quite hungry
But I had something delicious prepared for his little tummy
I made rice and a meat of curry
Pretty soon it was devoured in a hurry
We ate and we laughed and enjoyed each other’s company
I can testify that it was a one delicious Easter bunny.
