The Bunny and the Cross

There is this thing called money,
It is loved by corporations.
They monetized the Easter Bunny,
Cashing in on holiday preparations.
 
Stores are filled with candy and toys,
In the early spring each year.
And it delights young girls and boys,
When Easter morning nears.
 
For they know the Easter Rabbit,
Will pay a visit, with candy to their home.
And it has become such a habit,
That Easter’s meaning is nearly gone.
 
But corporations happily ignore,
That meaning and tradition are lost.
For, which will sell better, they’re sure,
Is the bunny, not the cross.

Seeing as it’s Easter, I decided not to go with the NaPoWriMo prompt this morning.
 
What’s your opinion, do you think the meaning of Easter has been lost in corporate America?

    Easter has nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus. It’s a pagen name for a made up holiday.

    • That’s a good point, but I guess what I was trying to get at is how long Christians have been using Easter in association with the Resurrection, and how companies have then twisted the ideology to line their pockets. Just like Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas, etc.

      God Bless,
