Fool for a Day


Don’t forget it’s the first of April

thus April Fool’s Day

I reminded myself as I perused the news

trust nothing you read

trust nought you hear

trust no one

as everyone is out to fool you and make a fool out of you


if I were to allow myself to be made into a fool

what joy it would bring to those out to fool me

and would it be such a bad thing in which to indulge

always safe in the knowledge that

no one is as good at making a fool out of me as I am

and I do it so regularly that

is there ever a day when I am not being a fool who is foolishly fooled?


“One seldom was able to do her a good turn without some thoughts of strangulation.”
― Alan Bennett, The Lady in the Van
