April The Twenty-First
It has often been said
(and sometimes in bed)
that the twenty-first day of April is a sham,
“It doesn’t exist!” Is heard;
and many other a disparaging word,
along the lines of: ‘Chimera’ ‘illusion’ ‘mirage’,
that is not to say that there aren’t believers,
people who adamantly insist that April The Twenty-First
is a day –
not the best day, nor the worst,
but a day, never the less.
“Yes?” is often stated at this,
“And what makes all you believers correct?
I suspect that you have been influenced by common opinion,
and are just a calendar minion,
who believes everything that they read there.
Take care, one day you may wake up and find the truth: April The Twenty-First is a curse of youth – or old age (as the adage goes).
And, when it snows on April the Twenty-First
fear the worst:
It may be May,
or a cold December’s day.
What does anybody know about anything, anyway?
