April Fools’ Day

by R. Renée Bembry

On April Fools’ Day

I threw my clothes away

‘Cause I only wanted to dress

In my birthday suit


On April Fools’ Day

I shaved my head bald

Even though I’m a girl I

Inked my scalp with a boot


On April Fools’ Day

I caught a poisonous snake

To decorate the icing

On a birthday cake


On April Fools’ Day

I penned this silly verse

Hope you did not believe

A single word – for goodness sake!
