President's Day

Monday next, or so they say,
    Is a Federal Holiday.
I thought that meant that I could roam
    As on Vacation, or stay at home.

But no! I now learn it ain't so!
    So off to work I still must go.
Tasks on Monday you are allowed to shirk
    If you're elected, but not if you work.

Still, "President's Day" is very good
    So celebrate it as we should:
Remember Gettysburg and Vally Forge
    And our favorite Presidents: Abe and George!
