A Real April The Fool

Dedicated to our dog FoFi
Who died on long ago may his soul RIP

I cried and cried
When they told me that u died
I tried and tried
Not to believe them and think they lied
I ride and ride
And when I took a look
You were not on my side
I thought I was lost
With out a guide
Don’t wanna go back home
And find no dog on the gate
It is meant that u be mine
It is your fate
But suddenly, men crossing the road
Laughing loud like a clown band
Waved and wished me, “Happy April fools! ”
I laughed even more than theirs
And turn my bicycle
Headed home
just to find
A sad April the fool
Became so very real

That was sad... its like saying don't talk about bad things, they might just come true. Preets
I liked this a lot Konjit. At first off I was warey of the opening lines as they appeared as cliche. I read it through twice more and I can now see what you are getting at. This is so well paced and begs the question is the loss of a pet equal to the loss of a human friend or relation? Is grief of the same intensity and quality for differing losses? By God! I don't have the answers, but you certainly have done a fantastic job in raising the questions. Much respect, Denis Joe
this is good. It flows well. The reader can see you and the dog and even a missing dog.
I do see alot of elements of your perspective in so may ways, relating to a dog's death (VERY SPRITUAL AND HUMAN) to the question of why other humans should die in war. Very deep and original, a lot of space to travel and for one's mind to grasp in order to understandwhere your own mind is taking us. Keep writing, refine and style to your own spirit! i admire your script here. be@peace! gcs
This poem certainly has great personal meaning and real elements, grammar polish aside.
