National Poetry Month

Last year I tried to post a haiku every day in April. This year, I shall post a short poem each day. They are not necessarily new poems, since I really don't think I have the stamina for that, but I shall write each day. I won't burden you with poems I think are terrible. Of course, I have a low bar to jump if last year's poems are any indication of what I like. Here is my contribution to  April 1st - April Fool's Day. To my children's father:

April Fool's Day

You were so easy to fool.
Just go to the window, look out, and say,
"Aw, darn it! The sows are out again!"
Your mood would darken.
Grumbling, you hurry to get dressed.
"April Fool!" 
You always laughed.
