Columbus Day

Columbus Day! Such magic words!

For only once a year is stirred

A day so packed, so filled with fun:

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!
