NaPoWriMo Poem #1


Coffee to go, slice of banana bread
early morning class; need to clear my head
Sandwich board sign stands outside by the drive 
"Going out of business" - thought it would thrive
Cars in front of me rely on them, too
What had happened to cause them to be through?
I in my winter scarf still, felt saddened
I ordered and asked her what had happened
She asked me what day it was; I answered
April 1- that's when she said "April Fools!"
I laughed, said it was the best prank I'd seen
in a long time, told her I was relieved
Thank goodness any morning I need one,
I can rely on them still, fresh coffee, hot
scent of which my brain finally received

Happy April Fools Day NaPoWriMo


  1. I'm not sure I would have taken the joke so well in my pre-caffeine morning routine. cute write and a nice start to NaPoWriMo.

  2. oh my...i think i would have been sad...
    i need my coffee...and i hate to see those reliable places
