HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY
Did you play any good April Fools jokes today? I tried the oldest one in the world on my husband this morning as we were out on our walk. I told him his zipper was down, and sure enough, it worked, He immediately reached for his zipper to check. I'm so naughty. It was so much fun. It was the first joke played on him today.
April Fools comes once a year.
But as for jokes, have no fear.
All the teasing is done in fun.
I hope your day is a happy one.
Your challenge for today is to write your own April Fools poem. What is the best April Fools joke you ever played or had played on you? I'm going to spend some time working on my own poem. Maybe by next year, I'll have a really good poem to share with you. If I'm clever I can make it work as a joke too.
I checked THE POETRY FRIDAY ANTHOLOGY FOR CELEBRATIONS, compiled by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong to see if there was a good April Fools poem in the book published by Pomelo Books. The joke was on me, I didn't find one. Now I get to do some more research. What fun.
