Columbus Day! Such magic words!
For only once a year is stirred
A day so packed, so filled with fun:
Never miss a local story.
The grand parades — the 10-K run —
The barbecues — the picnic fests —
With solemn speeches — anthems — guests;
Then add another festive sight:
The fireworks we’ll watch tonight.
But then the awful truth comes poking:
I have to work? You must be joking!
