Observation 235814: Styrofoamus imposterotus

Notes:

You know the story well.
It’s a damp, dreary day.
The woods gave up no shrooms
On a fruitless foray.

Backtracking to the car
On the trail past the bay,
Your eye catches something.
“What’s that?”, you say.

Wedged between tree roots,
Looks like a white conk … yeah!
You scramble up the beach
Like a hunter after prey.

You dig, twist, and pry.
Your treasure breaks away.
STYROFOAM IMPOSTER!
Not a real conk, per se=(

Happy April Fool’s Day.

Love it!!! I, too, have a sense of humor. Sometimes you need it when you go out and find nothing.

Thanks, Danny. I didn’t know you had such
