April Fools' Day - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

In 1854 or somewhere around that date,
Someone decided...
This day for them they would celebrate.
Poking fun and playing practical jokes.
Doing silly things and teasing when they spoke.

April Fools' Day today...
No longer seems that day to display a harmless merriment!
There is an exposed existence of a sickness witnessed,
Everyday.
And not only on the first of April,
Are these fools spreading their massive illnesses...
To feast on the remainder of sensibility!
And determined they are to prove,
Fools like them...
Are no chickens coming home to roost!
But to rule from ovens.
As they bake to roast to feed their mindless tastes!
And this is their day to rejoice in their self praise.
Unfolding an ignorance that suspends indefinitely!

    Just a bit of harmless fun? ? Perhaps not, especially when taken too far, who then knows the line, , he/she must tread carefully for the difference between a little joke and a broken heart can all lie in how far we are willing to go

    Fools like them...
    Are no chickens coming home to roost!
    But to rule from ovens.
    As they bake to roast to feed their mindless tastes! ....OUCH! !


    Your words are profound, stong statements through out

    Take care and April Fo.... Perhaps not! ! LOL! !

    Love duncan X
