2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 1

By: Robert Lee Brewer | April 1, 2016

Here we are: Day 1 of the 2016 April PAD Challenge. Time to poem! But first, I just want to remind folks that it’s great to share your poems in the comments; just make sure you save a copy somewhere else too. While it hasn’t happened in a few years, there’s always the chance some kind of techno-hiccup makes your poem disappear…forever. It’s even happened to me. So poem, but make sure your only copy isn’t on this site. Second, folks who want to share and discuss on Twitter, use the hashtag #aprpad (short for April Poem-A-Day Challenge). And now, let’s poem! It’s time, right?

For today’s prompt, write a foolish poem. It’s April Fool’s Day, after all. Let’s loosen up today with a poem in which we’re fools, others are fools, or there’s some kind of prank or tomfoolery happening. Fool around with it a while.
