Today, Monday is Presidents’ day,
Arranged for the long weekend…
Originally Lincoln and Washington,
February 12 and 18, were this holiday’s end.
Now two stalwarts from the past
Are removed and pushed aside…
Instead we’re left with a party for
Everyone on the Presidential ride.
It’s like our education,
No particulars ever needed….
About American civic pride
Lest minority ire be exceeded.
The folks coming into this land,
Coming in to share its pride….
Are astonished at education here
That advocates national identification die.
Whatever is convenient,
THAT the powers will do…
But be proud of their own heritage,
Alas, those days are through!
