Easter Bunny And Egg

Thanks to pagans, Easter became
About eggs that bunnies would bring
For children in a hunting game
To celebrate rebirth of Spring.
The eggs are multi colored bright,
Sometimes in baskets, sometimes not,
Some are in view, some out of sight -
A prize for each and any tot.
The bunny and the egg do be
Pagan symbols from long ago,
Symbolizing fertility.
Now Easter custom - doncha know!

Science deems it kind of funny -
An egg laying Easter Bunny!
