Best Poem of Richard Dates

I Am The Easter Bunny

I am the Easter Bunny,
I really do exist,
And if you think that’s funny,
I’ll smash you with my fist.

I am the Easter Bunny,
And I come around in Spring,
When it gets warm and sunny,
And the birds begin to sing.

I am the Easter Bunny,
And I loath those little birds,
With eggs so gross and runny,
I hate them beyond words.

I am the Easter Bunny,
And I have a habit strange,
I like to take those slimy eggs,
And boil them on my range.

I am the Easter Bunny,
But I’m an herbivore,
So I take those crummy hard-boiled ...

Messenger Of Spring

The first mosquito
Of Spring
Showed up today,
Harbinger of muggy mornings,
Sweating, sweltering summer days,
She’s a beauty,
Swelling her belly with my blood
But a swift swat sends this
Minute messenger of misery
Back to the future
Where she belongs.
