APRIL FOOLS, APRIL SHOWERS

(A silly example by Author, Nonnie Jules)

The month of April is filled with ways

To celebrate those awesome days…of spring.

But with the horrid rains and “fruitcakes” rule

Who can have fun with  April Showers & April Fools?

But, we mustn’t let it get us down

Because no matter where, fools abound

So, if there’s no sun inside your glare

It’s all because April Showers & April Fools are everywhere.
