Poets’ Round Table No. 214 – April Fools

Poets’ Round Table No. 214 – April Fools!

You don’t know what I’m up to, I’m not giving you a clue
though it should be understood, that I intend to get you good
be on your toes and be aware – I may be bold, I may not play fair
remember that there are no rules, when it comes to April Fools.

Watch what you eat or what you drink, I will get you before you think
Change the clocks, hide the date, spin you a yarn that makes you late
This day was made to plot and plan, I dare you to catch me if you can
Because you see, I’m the master! My goal is to get you faster!

A harmless prank, a simple joke, laughter it will stoke
you’ll never know where or when, but come the hour, you’ll know then
deceit will come in truth’s disguise, and right before your eyes
you may not know it, you may not see, but I’ll get you for doubting me.

A riddle or laughter to bestow, only the best for my beau
I have not forgotten your past pranks, dirty rotten
and I’ve found a gift so exquisite, wrapped up in a fool’s visit
to be opened especially by you – do you trust me, my boo?

Look! There’s nothing up my sleeve; for you I won’t deceive.
I’m not a joker, I promise. Your fears you will dismiss.
And yet, on this day of high-jinx you really shouldn’t blink
I’ll have the last laugh yet…at least ‘til next year, I bet.
