Playing April Fool

Someone hid my panties 
     And they're nowhere to be seen.
Since I put my make-up on,
     My face has turned bright green.

My alarm clock rang at 3 am.  
     That's really rather cruel!
Someone - oh now was it you? -
     Was playing April Fool.

Someone put a slimy toad
     Deep down inside my bed.
Then my soap went missing,
     But I've polish there instead.

My shampoo's turned my lovely hair
     An awful shade of blue.
So someone's playing April Fool.
     I hope it wasn't you!

Someone ate the cakes I made.
     I hope they made them sick!
I put some scented soap in them
     To stop their nasty tricks.

I tied their shoes together - but 
     They won't untie those knots!
Is this the day for silly tricks?
     Oh yes, I quite forgot.

FOLLOW-UP:  I wonder if it was YOU who played these tricks on me?  What children and their teachers actually did, was to choose this poem, along with almost 400 others to be published, and it was published in my book "Celebrations" by AMS Educational Publishing, Leeds.  It wasn't an April Fool trick - - - well, I don't think it was!  I hope you enjoy it too.  Josie
