Love going to the beach as I will be doing today...

No Aprils fool will I cast out,
I think it a day that makes us all look like a lout,
Stupid and childish I don’t need to anymore be,
It’s there as usual anyway for the entire world to see…

Instead I am heading to the beach,
Taking my bike for a boardwalk ride,
Talking to the seagulls & hearing them caw,
Maybe later I will write and tell what I saw…

Got to stop and say HI to my mom,
She is with me all the time but rarely do I recall,
Her pounding waves on our beach,
Take me far and away out of man’s reach…

Your mom has a wide waistline… She covers much more than the coast of Jersey.

I even forgot that it was April Fools' Day, so had no pranks planned.

And I can see that your poem is no joke, unless you are pulling our legs by telling us you are going to the shore.

Enjoy that beach trip. The seagulls are one of my favorites at the ocean.
