Okay...this is a day late, but, I'm still posting it! I had a long day but, it just wasn't long enough! Hope you weren't too fooled! :)

"Happy April Fools Day, You Fools!"

A country booby or city tit?
Patch, the fool, or full of wit?
Ferdyshchenko, flip the finge . . .
Err . . . Well, even Pocket's saved some brilliance in his bag of wind!
And all Patsy Schlemiels are pushovers!
With their droller pranks and mountebanks
Outfoxing every sucker in cunning circumvents . . .
Very deceptive tricksters, they are, some with sidekicks, namely, Muggins
They're thigh-slapping jesters . . . and now I'm thinking my one leg might be longer than the other . . . ?
I was duped! ...led on to delude . . .
Cozened like a cod, knowingly misled, and you?
Chump if you may, yes man, I marked a fish out of water and
Named it Trump!
You'all are arses! . . . Donkey ears with bells on . . . folly, frippery and fun!
Well, that's fine. . . until their belly laugh becomes my punch line!
Puck! Moving Bucket! . . . Duck!
There's a harlequin!
Preying on the aim, a comedienne . . .
But, if he blackguards me, he'll be sure to grape
He and his so-called antics, I'll just purple his gags of japes!
Such idiots! . . . baubles in hand, oaf performers, they bumble to amuse, their hangers-on-err's!
Would any cavalcade hunger for this piece of cake?
Maybe a lubber, a tag, or a very merry Andrew, that SOB lampoon . . . !
Had me laughing til I wheezed, the big buffoon!
Oh! ...and Costard, such a silly man, who's carrying the pickle now?
Damn, didn't Dylan steal it from Presley, the crown?
You ain't nothing but a hound dog!
Here . . . sniff this!

Happy April Fools Day, You fools!
