A Poetry Friday blast from the past!

I figured today was the right Friday to repost the poem that lead of last year's April extravaganza. Cuz really, April 1st is right around the corner, and you gotta get ready. So... as originally posted here...

Gregory K.

Someone took my toothpaste tube and filled it up with jam.
Someone changed my sandwich into fluffernut-and-ham.
Someone laced my sneakers so they tie down by my toes.
Someone changed the vacuum so it doesn't suck, it blows.
Someone poured the sugar out and filled the bowl with salt.
Someone messed up all the clocks and made it seem my fault.
For me today, I have to say, it's nervousness that rules....
Since all that happened yesterday and now it's April Fools'!

Go on and check out the poetry Friday roundup hosted over at Cuentesitos. You'll be glad you did! (And oh yeah... you can sign up to have all my poems, and really just the poems, e-mailed to you as they hit my blog. Look over on the sidebar for a SUBSCRIBE button or shoot me an e-mail, and I'll sign you up).
