For this week’s Haibun Monday, write about April Fools’ Day: a time when you played a prank or had one played on you; the best April Fools’ prank you’ve experienced or heard of; or a memorable April Fools’ Day. You could even play a joke on us in your haibun! Aim to write no more than three tight paragraphs about 1st April, followed by a traditional haiku that includes reference to the season.
If you are new, here’s how to join in:
- Write a haibun in response to the challenge.
- Read and comment on other poets’ work – we all come here to have our poems read.
- Please link back to dVerse from your site/blog.
- Comment and participate in our discussion below, if you like. We are a friendly bunch of poets.
Well, there was the time I brought a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts into work and set it in the breakroom, where all of the treats co-workers bring are set and there for the taking. Instead of doughnuts, the box was full of carrot and celery sticks.
Then there was the time I played a prank on my son. I asked 10 different people to call him at assigned times, which worked out to every hour from 9am to 6pm. Every person asked to speak with Franklin. At 7pm I called my son and said, “I’m Franklin, have there been any calls for me?”
The worst prank I ever pulled on someone was on my ex-boyfriend (he was my boyfriend at the time). I printed out 4 pictures of Slash, the guitarist from Guns N Roses, then taped them on each of his truck tires when I got home from work. I ran in the house, looking freaked out and said, “Somebody slashed all of the tires on your truck!” I got him but good.
Now is the time for
me to say, these stories are
the prank – April Fools!
Pranks were found here.
