The feather floated down from the bird
It was made of sugar spun
Soft and sweet
Such feathers covered a body of chocolate
On feet of cake
A bird who built the nest
Who hatched from the egg
That the easter bunny laid

The bird sat next to puppies of sour dough
Sustainance to kids so sick
becoming healthy with medicines hospitals made
Beds strewn with flowers of pink
Candy shades of pills
Tablets the colour of sea side rock
And drips of sweat and salt
And blood

The children waited with sore eyes and missing limbs
Waited for treats
And stories to kill the time of boredom
Not knowing to fear that they could have been the killed
But suspecting something
