April 1st is just a joke,
Don't you get it, silly bloke,
The whole day is so bespoke,
April 1st is just a joke.

Of old, the day did not exist.
It went from 31st to April 5th.
The master had an iron fist,
Of old, the day did not exist.

For history, the story's told
When days were young and months were old,
That some of them were still quite bold,
For history, the story's told.

The kalends and her three short friends,
Came up after the last month's end,
To Fortuna's will the four did tend,
The kalends and her three short friends.

As they came up, the master demanded,
They fall in line, they were commanded,
When they refused, they were remanded,
As they came up, the master demanded.

Taking heed of their fruitless fight,
They admitted and begged the master's right,
Judgement came after day and night,
Taking heed of their fruitless fight.

The three days after were reinstated,
The anger of their master abated,
But the leader of them who agitated,
The three days after were reinstated.

April 1st, still stood firm stance,
Relegated for foolish dance,
Having nothing, but little chance,
April 1st, still stood firm stance.

After forever, the master fell,
As history itself can quite retell,
All those outcasts, who were now well,
After forever, the master fell.

There was still one day, standing strong,
Who now came back, but wasn't long.
For those about, to sing her song,
There was still one day, standing strong.

April 1st, had been a fool,
Not accepting another's rule,
But now was standing tall and cool,
April 1st, had been a fool.

The story's lost to simple folk,
Known only to those who care to poke,
Bet happy now that i awoke,
April 1st is just a joke.

Comment on April 1st is just a joke.
