Haiku to You Too!
April 1, 2020

Knock!)) Knock!))) “Who’s there?” “BUM!”
”Bum who?” BuMFuZZled! Cati
answered her creative

calling. Haikus are
hard. Must count all the sylla-
Bam! = one syllable packs double

the spice. Rachael Ray,
cook by the bay, April Fool!
If your cat acts up,

blow the whistle. If
your dog licks you, you must kiss
him back! The loudest fool is

not the last to laugh.
Poem is a verb. I could
have poemed all night.

by Cindy Bousquet Harris, Cindi Neisinger, Ai Kelly, Delia Vaden, Natalie Champion, Larry Burns, Nan Friedley, Julianna Cruz, Dar Stone, and Cati Porter

Original prompt: Write one line of poetry that is approximately equal to ten syllables. Since it’s April Fool’s Day, if you want to work in a joke or pun or retell a favorite prank, feel free. Let’s keep it light today.
