Another poem from the book MOXIE DAY and Family!

April Fools
I wanted to make a prank call, 
but since I'm not allowed 
to use the phone anymore, 
I decided to write a prank
letter instead.

Dear Sir, Is your refrigerator running? Please 

And he did:
Dear Ma'am, Thank you for the note, 
after reading it I turned
to see my refrigerator running 
away. It would have escaped, 
but bumped its head on the door
and knocked itself cold.
By the way, is your nose running? 

Immediately I wrote back
to tell him that he could not  
fool me
with my own clever trick.
Then I wiped my nose, just to check.
It was gone!
