April is national poetry writing month (NaPoWriMo) where participants must write a poem each day.  Here we go with Day one.


The Fool

Today is the day for fools,
A time for fun and pranks.
They stand high and proud upon the stool,
Where no one can give them spanks.

His folly and mischief he spreads around,
To the dismay of his guessing goal.
Mayhem rules the day abound,
The fool is in full roll.

So where does this fool go,
When his time has crept away?
All in fun with friend and foe,
For he will come another day.
