April Fool

  • Come be my April Fool
    Come you're the only one
    Come on your rusted bike
    Come we'll break all the rules

    We'll ride like writers ride
    Neither rich nor broke
    We'll race through alleyways
    In our tattered cloaks so

    Come be my April Fool
    Come we'll break all the rules

    We'll burn all of our poems
    Add to God's debris
    We'll pray to all of our saints
    Icons of mystery
    We'll tramp through the mire
    When our souls feel dead
    With laughter we'll inspire
    Then back to life again

    Come you're the only one
    Come be my April Fool
    Come come
    Be my April Fool
    We'll break all the rules Writer/s: PATTI SMITH, TONY SHANAHAN
