April is National Poetry Month

Today starts National Poetry Month! To celebrate (and to keep the flame burning from Madness! Poetry) I am going to be writing a poem a day. Some will be short, and some will be long. Most will probably be bad. Maybe I'll have one or two that are publishable.

I won't be posting every poem on here, but I will try to put one or two up a week. Here is today's:

A Love Poem in April

Your eyes are like giant pools
Of brown sludge.

Your hair would make ghouls
Hold a grudge.

Your teeth look like small jewels
In a pig’s bed.

Your hands dainty molecules
Of heavy lead.

It seems a bit cruel.
Have you guessed?

Today is April Fools,
I just jest.
