The first prompt------Write an April Fool's poem.

I woke to the sun
shining through my window,
the birds singing
their spring melodies.
The sky is blue,
the daffodils bright yellow.
but no,
it’s April Fool’s day
and the sky is gray,
with gusting cold wind
and snow!

Poetry contains almost all you need to know about life

The Floating Tripod.

They emailed me with an offer,
a floating tripod for my camera.
I thought "What the heck is this"?
I might have known,
it was 'All Fools Day' .
The joke is on them,
I cancelled my subscription.
