I wore a mask to school one day.
A mask to keep me hidden,
Not a mask for my teachers or friends
And it wasn’t Halloween that day either.
I wore a mask to cover my face.
My face of bright blue pimples.
They reminded me of toothpaste.
These pimples were not real.
But they were not coming off.
These pimples were given by my brother.
He does not have these pimples
These pimples that, if someone saw, would send me straight to my death.
You make ask why I have these pimples
Of bright blue.
Because today was April 1st
And my brother pulled a trick on me
Of permanent marker…oueeee!
