If the BRAKE LIGHT comes on when you squeeze the front brake lever then the bulb and associated wiring is OK. I would check operation of the rear brake pedal switch. It might be dead, require adjustment or have a poor connection.
Are you also saying that the TAIL LIGHT (running light) is out? This should be on whenever the front lights are on. If the front lights come on OK but the tail light does not, then it's likely the bulb, as Kiwi said. If no running lights come on when they should, then it's likely a fuse or the light switch, though it could be a wiring issue, which could be tricky to track down.
I propose to live forever. So far, so good.
