PRESIDENT'S DAY
(2/18/19)


most
of us work
today

but have no
financial

no postal
support
on this
"holiday"

what
a joke

I wonder
what those
fiscal

those
federal employees
think

with their
precious
day off

seeing
that the majority
of the nation
labors as usual
through yet
another
Monday

except
that we
work a bit
debilitated

a bit
frustrated

businesses
failing
everywhere

yet
they play

we realize
that recognition
is due
for centuries
of public
service

but doubt
that even
one
Commander In Chief
throughout history

would want
any employee
of this Great
Nation

to have
to hold
a badly needed
paycheck

even
for just
one
unnecessary day

because
of a red

white

and blue
parade
