It's April Fools Today

My daddy played a trick on me
When I was just a tike
Asleep, I was in dreamland town
A 'riding on my bike

And suddenly - I hear a noise
A clanging sound it seems
It was my dad with pots in hand
He's banging on the beams

He's shouting out "wake up, wake up"
We're getting in the ride
It's time to go, no time to waste
We've got to get outside!

There's bees in here, they're everywhere
They're stinging all they see
Get in those clothes, hitch up your boots
It's time for us to flee!

So up I jump, still in a daze
What happened to my bike?
Where are my clothes, can't find my boots
Oh my, this I don't like

We run outside, hey - where's the car
Dad woke us up you know
Those bees in there will sting for sure
It's time for us to go!

My dad's outside with teary eyes
From laughing all the way
He turns to us and with a grin
"It's April Fools today!

    Thank for the sweet reply to my comment....PS.... Yes, I was full of pranks. I pulled a fast one on my sister. I called her up, asked if she wants to have lunch. She said yes, I told her to get dressed then call me when she was ready for me to pick her up... LOL, after she called, I told her to wait outside, cause I was on my way. After 15 minutes of waiting. She told me I was taking long. LOL, then I yelled APRIL FOOLS! LOL, gosh I got her good. That is why I love this poem. LOL, this dad rocks

    WOW, Neva you have a very fast and amazing flow. I hope you don't mind when I say this... LOL, I love the April fools joke your daddy played on you. I'm sure it's only a creative poem. However, it is awesome! Mostly I enjoyed the Dad's GRIN... I can picture it. I pulled many foolish jokes this April first... Hugs..LINDA
