Poet's Corner: Have You Heard

Have You Heard

Oh have you heard it's time for vaccinations?
I think someone put salt in your tea.
They're giving us eleven-month vacations.
And Florida has sunk into the sea.

Oh have you heard the President has measles?
The principal has just burned down the school.
Your hair is full of ants and purple weasels—
                   APRIL FOOL!

Shel Silverstein (1930 – 1999)

A day early, true, but I think we can all agree that posting an April Fools Day poem on March 31 is rather foolish.
