Wicca!

My babuska was a witch
and she always said that
naughty boys became rabbits.

Which would dig tunnels to hell
and hide the chocolate eggs
during Easter at the orders of the devil.

My babuska was very badly behaved
and she wrapped chocolates in gold paper
that boys looked for in the circles of hell.

My babuska was very rich in stories
and punishments and curses to frighten.
In addition, she made delicious cookies.

Shaped like rabbits, shaped like boys
shaped like brooms... covered in chocolate.
My babuska was a great wacky witch!

My babuska always said
that girls should take care
what they see in the mirror...

And the boys should be prepared
to go get them from the other side
of the mirror in which they saw them.

Babuska hated mirrors, she said,
and she only liked rabbits
well baked with potatoes.

Babuska said that holes
dug by rabbits, the whitest,
they were doors to an underworld!

That the best thing was to cover them
with giant eggs made of chocolate
filled with myths and legends.

Babuska said many unusual things
while she skinned the rabbits
that she would prepare for our dinner!
