Verse upon the Day’s Observance

To make a day a holiday
To give a day to people
By giving a day to people
Seems a noble thing
A high honor that endures

pro patria

Who gets the day
Who loses it
And how those who have it mark it

And it is a big if
As many ifs are
Small though the word is
The way we mark it
Is the way we ought to mark it
Then what honor is it

Ought and is aren’t the same
Of course
I know it
You know it
I think
But there are a lot of people
Thinking that the way things are
Is the way that they must be
And I wonder if they’ve thought through what that means
