The Easter Bunny Dropped His Eggs

Regina Puckett


 Beautiful, bright colors litter the yard

Where the Easter Bunny dropped his eggs

But standing on the corner – so battered and scarred

One of our homeless soldiers reluctantly begs

Such a vast difference between the haves and have nots

We watch our children as they run to gather their spoils

While the wounded and forgotten dig their own plots

I wonder when the world will stop thinking of guns as toys?

I wonder when we will collect up our lost and forgotten?

And when we’ll help instead of only passing by and staring

Maybe before all of the beautiful Easter eggs are rotten

And before we are past the point of ever, truly caring
