The Death of Peter Rabbit...
One of the most iconic storybook characters we have in English literature is a little bunny named Peter Rabbit. Peter Rabbit learns many important lessons through his adventures. When he sneaks into Mr. McGregor’s garden he learns that his actions have consequences. Through his adventures and mischiefs, he finally makes his way home, but not before realizing his mistakes. Peter Rabbit learned what the phrase ‘home sweet home’ really means when he flopped his exhausted body down on the floor of his little rabbit hole after a day of literally running for his life. His mother recognized that he was not doing well and gave him a spoonful of chamomile tea and sent him off to bed to feel better. In my twisted version of the story, Peter Rabbit is unaware that the tea he is consuming is actually laced with poison and that his beloved mother is actually Mr. McGregor in disguise. Mr. McGregor is out to get Peter Rabbit for all the mischief he had caused. After consuming a teaspoon of the deadly concoction, Peter Rabbit seized to exist.
