NaPoWriMo 2016 , Day One -- Wild Today, a poem for April Fools Day


The Joker

The Joker is wild today
Obnoxious in every way
There's no way to reign him in
This day lying's not a sin

Every year come April First
To trick you good he will burst
Society says be cool
Joker's prank it's April Fool

I guess it is a good thing to have one day a year for liars and the fools who believe them.

I absolutely detest April's Fools... Basically since I am so naive I get fooled left, right and centre. This poem, however, is no joke! Really well done!
