Was Jerry Flynn the Real Easter Bunny? The Carleton Place Bunny Run 2015


Magic was about in the town of Carleton Place on Saturday.

There were many tales of chocolate, and happy times on foot.

We needed to prosper, have fun, and not pussyfoot.

The Easter Bunny was on the lips of those who were dear,

Who was he, and would he appear?

And, if you couldn’t bring good news, then give us all some good beer Bronx cheer!

These gals were not talking, but they showed no fear,

They told one and all,

Let’s not have any tears!

Frosty was too busy to think– well just for awhile,

C’mon everyone, let’s just walk the darn mile!”

It was obvious that many knew the real Bunny was afoot,

It was murmured, and whispered, and tales were well put.

Everyone was so quiet, you could heard the drop of a pin,

But, was the real Easter Bunny dressed up as young Jerry Flynn?

They said they knew nothing. But I figured they knew a lot.

I looked and I wondered– which one was the cat?

The other just smiled, sporting her pretty fur hat.

But here he is again,

Is this where the real Bunny is at?

But then I wondered–might he be just be the Cat Without a Hat?

Kory claimed he knew nothing– so did his pal,

Mayor Louis and sweet Ana thought the Bunny’s real name was Hal.

Most remained silent that rocked the Moore House joint.

The Bunny is not up here, and they quickly made their point.

These gals just waved and said,”Oh My” and sighed,

Roy Brown stayed silent and just wanted to fly.

But here HE is again midst our local Tower of Power,

It was obvious that he might just be the man of the hour!

These dogs had no opinion, their smiles were not there,

They just whined and looked at me, then stared in the air.

So was Jerry the Bunny? Was he for real?

This is Cindy, Kory’s mum, and she has nerves of steel.

No matter how hard I asked for some kind of truth,

She told me I should not act like some sort of sleuth.

For the Easter Bunny is magical, and the secret is to remain,

I needed to stop talking and just use my brain,

Jerry Flynn might not be the bunny, yet we should embrace,

The real magic is actually our town,

Yes, that would be the town of Carleton Place.
