April Fools’ Day

Today is April Fools’ Day.
It’s a lot of fun
Until the shoe is on the other foot.
That is really bummed.

Speaking of shoes,
There’s always, “Your shoe’s untied.”
Or what about the fake spider?
Let’s run away and hide.

Even at the office,
Giving out bogus pink slips
Isn’t so funny when the perpetrator
Gets from his boss, lip.

From rubber snakes to
The arrow “through” the head,
Jokes from morning
Until time to go to bed.

And on the Internet,
You’d think we’d get a rest.
We get so tricked –
All that data – what a mess!

Today is April Fools’ Day
It’s a lot of fun
Until the shoe is on the other foot
That is really bummed.
