Brown Bunny Rabbit Living Underneath the Cement Stairs © Delores Randall
I noticed the brown bunny rabbit an year ago hiding among an straw plant. It was much smaller and just sat there looking at me. I left lettuce and spinach clipping in front of the plant for the rabbit to eat. The next day I notice the rabbit in the back yard hopping around. Over the winter I did not see the rabbit.
Out of the blue this about two weeks ago the brown bunny rabbit reappeared. I looked out my front door window and there it was sitting on the front sidewalk. I was surprise and stood there gawking through the side glass wondering why is this rabbit just sitting there?

Above is the home I grew up in and I’ve seen many folks passed through these blessed doors. This home was built in 1919 or before based on my recollection. Proud of it too…. HA!
I am 47 years old. Lived long enough to distinguish bullshit from factual rhetoric rants and raves. I can attest that I’ve watch working class folks in my own family tree during my lifetime folks being spoon fed the bullshit. Worked themselves to the bone I tell you. You know the American Dream that we all work hard to obtained? Some folks call it luck if you become an millionaire, some of us folks lean on the bible touted as blessings. But what is the real deal to obtaining the allege “American Dream”? That dream that so many folks tell some of us to chase? YURP…that dream. Some of us folks never get pass working entry level salaries nor get an chance at making nor breaking one million dollars in an check to carry and deposit into our bank accounts. That dream. Some folks claim it is not about money? Oh really now. Tell that to the banker that holds the mortgage, the administration that want the tuition check, the grocery store that want money when you purchase the produce, the creditors that one borrowed money for bullshit items and goods. Tell them “I am seeking the American Dream” that someone told you along the path and can I get an waiver until I obtain it?
Proverbial bullshit. It is an sad ephinany to wake up one day and realize you have been had and duped. Damn shame….and the joke is on us and me. Maybe I am simply being cynical today but all I know is shit is deep during this recession. I have always heard the slogan “blame it on the black guy” and when given a chance it will be blamed on the black man. We have an black man in office for the first time during my lifetime. 43 Presidents were white and all of sudden this black man attempts to fix shit. Stuff is wrong. What about all the shit left on that black mans desk? What about the prior Presidents that ruled the United States? Clearly folks can not be that blind to believe that one man, one black man caused the fall of the United States?

Our Eldest Son
This message is not personal. It is specifically for the 18 year and older crew that believe life is always going to be child’s play. It is an message to alert the kids at heart to the beginning of their adulthood in case no one ever told them otherwise. Time to wake up and realize that the world did not stop because you turned 18 plus years old. You may be experiencing these symptoms if you’re 18 years plus and older. By the way as we become golden children, we are hopeful we get to do our kids the same way they did us and we plan on driving by their cribs with the same look on our face as our eldest child is giving us in this picture. My rant is said in love. Never take nothing from the journey…it is an good ride until the end. Smirk face…..
