An Easter Poem

It’s spring time in Asheville and we’ve got Chocolate Bunnies on the brain.  We couldn’t resist sharing this Easter poem written by one of our team members.  Did you know that in Northern Canada a group of bunnies is called a Fluffle?  If that is the case I wonder what you call a group of chocolate bunnies?

A Ruffle Among the Fluffle Over a Chocolate Fetish Truffle

I’d like to tell you all a story,
Of an occurrence, a few years ago
That involved a bunch of bunnies
Who were scampering, to and fro.

I saw them hopping everywhere,
Here and there and yonder.
Sniffing, scratching and digging ‘round,
Their antics made me ponder.

And I finally realized, it must be food
That they were searching for.
But little did I realize
What lay ahead, in store.

I saw one of the rabbits
Tear open the paper bag,
And pull out a chocolate truffle,
As his little tail began to wag.

No sooner had he done this,
When all the other rabbits jumped
On top of this one little bunny,
Who staggered, tipped, then slumped.

A tremendous tug of war ensued
As each one tried to hold the treat.
After several minutes of wrestling though
Each and every one seemed beat.

They seemed to reach an understanding
As each one took just a bit.
All got some of the special morsel
Their satisfaction looked legit.

They skittered off as I reached down
And picked up the bag, so tattered.
Chocolate Fetish is what it read
And I thought, that’s all that mattered.

They had argued, fought and compromised
When their will was put to test
And they saw fit only to fight
When the prize was simply best!
