An epic poem in honor of April Fool's Day!

Ahem...

I’m not going out there,
Oh man, there’s no way…
My fly might be down…
Or so someone might say…


Watch out for the spider!
There’s one in your hair!
It’s just so exhausting,
But nobody cares.


My desk might be adorned
With fake nail polish or poo



And I hate when you tell me
I’ve got TP on my shoe…


I’m not going out there.
Oh man, there’s no way!
No, I’m not a chicken
It’s just April Fool’s Day!

...

...and hey, yes I'll give you my autograph when this epic poem is published.

You're welcome.

This post is linked to Saturday Centus and the prompt is in bold (and, yes, Centusians, I know there's not supposed to be any pictures!) To read other SC links, just click here!

I wouldn't look in a beautifully wrapped packages either. They may contain a fake finger or something worse.

Love the poem, hate being the victim of April Fool's pranks! You're smart to stay home and avoid them at all costs!

Diane said...

Love the poem! Though I could have done without the spider pic! Everyone who knows me, knows they'd better not tease me about something as serious as a spider! I'm such an Arachnophobe!

Good one Jenny:) My ex sent me to the store for a jar of screw threads once... and my kids always put a rubber band on the spray thingy on the sink so when I turned the water on I got sprayed. And it happened every year! I'm such a doofus :)
Have a fun April Oneth!

I am so lame when it comes to April Fool's Day. Seriously. I never do anything. Sigh.

My kindergarten-aged daughter tried to play the "there's a spider in your hair" card yesterday. The things she's learning at school! (Shakes head)
I got her back today while brushing her hair this morning when I informed her that she had a huge rat's nest in her hair and I needed to cut it out with a scissors.

Jennifer said...

This cracked me up! I hope no one tricks you today, Jenny. :)

Jenny you make me think of Renee, my daughter she was always in fun shops lookin for plastic fried eggs, peanuts and dog poop. The thing was Renee did it most the year not just April fools..

Oh if only the two trees down in our yard were not an April Fool's joke on me. We got nailed yesterday, but thankfully, they didn't fall on the house. Storms are not my friend.

XO,

The Words Crafter said...

Oh, very clever and funny!

For the record, I once came out of the ladies room and all my co-workers immediately fell over, laughing hysterically. I had the seat cover dragging from the back of my pants!!!!

If only it had been April Fools Day...

Ostriches Look Funny said...

Oh my gravy, this is how my whole day has been. I guess I can blame it on April FOOLS and not on my sleep deprivation. SCORE!

I dislike April Fool's day - really dislike it.

~Lissa said...

I love it. Luckily I didn't fall for any April Fools jokes today other than my roommate telling me a coupon we had been saving expired. Not the funniest or most edgy fool but I did believe her. haha.
