April’s Fool

April’s Fool

the boy who cried wolf
replacing old with the new
the girl who yelled rat

loud scream for a rat
invisible one it seems
somewhere on her desk

the trap smoothly set
the foolish to her rescue
the horrible laugh

staring down would be victim
who scared a whole hall

chivalry must die
at least it should in this case
avoid things like this

should save the honor
quiet mouse over loud mouth
justice for this day

will take a whole year
repaying this player’s prank
sprung on April’s fool
