I woke up in my bed one morning,

Going to school, which I was not longing.

It was dark and stormy outside,

So I wanted to enjoy the warmth inside.

I decided to tell mom,

“I’m sick! I don’t want to go out in the storm.”

Mom said, “Stop telling lies dear,

Otherwise Santa may not bring any gifts this year.”

So I quickly brushed my teeth and had a shower,

Thinking about my life and how it’s a horror.

Then I had breakfast and went to my bus stop

Realizing my brain was a total flop.

It dawned on me that it was a Saturday

Oh yeah, and also April Fools Day.
