We've created actual artifacts from the history of this fake Urban Legend in order to attract an interest in our premise. This document was supposedly found at a child's high-school in 2003. Written here are the lyrics to the poem used in the child's game, 'Chasing the Rabbit', which, when recited by candle light, will summon Mr. Rabbity who brings treats in the form of delicious chocolates.
