It’s National Poetry Month, and once again, I am participating in Writer’s Digest‘s Poem-A-Day challenge. I hope you’ll join me on this journey. You can post on the Writer’s Digest site, http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides, or  you can comment here too.

Today’s prompt is to write a foolish poem. My take is serious, posing the question “Who’s the Fool?”

Who’s the Fool?


A fool’s errand to

Aggrandize oneself, to

Build oneself up, to

Pretend you’re better,

Stronger, smarter

When what you really need to be is

A fool in the eyes of the world.

Fool’s rush in

To comparisons and competitions

With each other.

Be judged a fool instead

By those that foolishly

Find themselves

Not foolish.
