His Own April Fool Poem by Spock the Vegan

His Own April Fool

Rating: 4.8


My oldest brother came up with a plan
For tomorrow's April Fools day for the clan.
He replaced the sugar in the bowl with salt.
It was a simple plan, but it had a fault

On April first he was the first to rise.
He found his strategy wasn't so wise:
He wanted cereal, and wanted it sweet,
So he spooned some salt into his shredded wheat.

He found out the joke was very cruel,
When he became his own April fool.

Your memory is ALMOST correct. I did NOT replace the sugar in the bowl with salt. I just carefully added one teaspoon of salt to the top of the sugar in the bowl.
