COLUMBUS DAY
(10/9/17)

why move
such an insignificant
holiday
to Monday?

to give
postal workers

bank tellers

lawyers

a long
weekend?

they are
slobs

slackers

dilettantes

meanwhile
the vast majority
of the rest of us
struggle along
to conduct business
without
some of these
vital cogs

thank God
for FedEx

PayPal

LegalZoom

and the many
other
on the ball
competitors
that supplant
these occupatory
posers

we shall
know
upon whom
to depend
in the future

and hope
that these
three day loafers
are suffering mightily
at the hands
of their
loved ones
