My Brother Was Brought by a Bunny by Kenn Nesbitt

My brother was brought by a bunny.
He came in a basket today
surrounded by candy and chocolates.
I’m shocked that he showed up this way.

And, somehow, he’s tinted with zigzags
and covered with colorful dots.
He’s stippled with sparkles and spangles.
He’s slathered with splashes and spots.

My brother’s as bright as a rainbow.
He’s yellow and purple and red.
And, strangely, I don’t see his stomach.
And, also, I can’t find his head.

I can’t find his back or his bottom.
I don’t see an arm or a leg.
It’s weird but, because I’m a chicken,
my brother arrived as an egg.
