The Bunny on the Tube (final part)

What you see is what you get.

Sometimes, maybe once in a lifetime,
you’ll experience an epiphany.
A revelation of some sorts.
A deeper insight into your very own self.

Having analysed this funny bunny,
being oh so content with my witty analysis,
going on with life, as anyone does,
and not suspecting the coming black swan,
I was completely caught by surprise,
by this sudden sledgehammer slam.

Thinking it was me looking at the bunny,
I simply overlooked the fact that the bunny was looking at me!

It was me who started this series to begin with.
It was me buying the tube.
It was me brushing my children’s teeth with this neuro-toxin.
It was me buying the tube again!

What you see is what you get,
and it’s me, that’s what you get.
This bunny isn’t staring into the headlights.
It’s staring at me!

The staring
The giggling
The boozing
The drugging
The gossip

it’s all on the tube.
For all to see.

So thank you dear bunny!
For pointing out my own insanity.
I can see now clearly who you really are.
You’re the bunny of the brave!

As for me,
I guess I just couldn’t see
the forest for the trees.
