Easter Bunny and tooth fairy are ‘essential workers,’ NZ PM says

Imagination slaves on
for, even when the money’s gone,
the valuable bits of ourselves
must still be sold:
bartering the tooth for black coins.
What of those gleaming scrap-metal heaps?
What purchase have they in an Easter
where earth-toned eggs match the backsplash,
most widely available in shades of bone?
