April fools' day - ordinarily all manner of tomfoolery abounds


Views: 87

Written/updated since last year

unlike any other
when out of this world

outlandish accouterments

people did wear
hermetically sealed

of even faintest tear

to avoid contamination

against coronavirus pandemic
air supply difficult to spare

when wing and prayer

soul saving amazing grace
frankly against scalpers, marauders,
and fraudsters steeling
themselves to profiteer.


Pandemic straps tightly

plied girded beltway

unlike any other All fools day

in annals of recorded ("fake") history

western civilization tapestry doth fray

April first two thousand and twenty four

neigh, no time for horseplay

what with coronavirus (COVID-19)

boarded ship of jilted fools
(think Homo sapiens)

barred courtesy omnipotent jackstay

furloughed workers analogous

grumpy minions lay


dwarfed by unfortunate global events, née...

germinating, jackknifing, and wreaking havoc

Mother Earth nonchalantly toying

(indiscriminately) regarding humanity

as bestrewing bajillion biohazards berserkly

bequeathing bedlam child's play

just desserts, she doth understandably repay

man/womankind flicked as flotsam and jetsam

vile treatment diabolically heaped,
jubilantly loosed, maniacally pitched
upon her terrestrial firma oy vey

she chokes, gags, laughs raspily yea

rebuffs, refuses, and renounces further abuse.


Nevertheless toothless gumption, albeit feeble

fighting spirit, her survival instincts assail

cumulative environmental destruction
triggered casus belli expelling deadly toxins,

when Gaia doth exhale

since onset of global interregnum
(think virulent spreading poisonous Kudzu
like wildfire biohazard)

since world wide webbed disease

brought grinding halt

consumerist paradigm in lockdown,


nonetheless within brief interim

noticeable clearer air to inhale

amazingly enough postal system...
intact voila... uninterrupted delivery of mail,

the daily highlight experienced
among people emotionally crippled

pasty faced and pale

finds quivering Captain Kangaroo

courting King Crimsom,
plus good n plenti proud primates
each dancing and quivering

like a captive dang gulling quail.
