Every Day’s a Holiday (When You’re Not Edible)
A sonnet to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, from a literary chicken
Buckawk! Being a chicken doth grow weary,
Even a Shakespearean hen, forsooth—
And tho I peck till mine eyes do go bleary,
I’m still not blind to the batter-fried truth.
But lo! What site has my feathers astir?
Daily Observances, a happy niche
Where thou canst find holidays that occur,
Find a special day, month, or week for each.
At Celebrations Marketing I did spy
National Chicken Month in September.
On Respect for Chickens Day, none shall fry—
For May 4 is a date to remember!
Chickens unite! Peck at some libations,
And enjoy life’s daily celebrations.
