... a busy month for sure ...
We are now into November,
As if you didn't know.
Election Day has come and gone
And some survived the blow.
Some newly-elected, some the same
Will be serving our community.
Those who didn't get the vote
Will retreat with some impunity.
The next holiday is Veterans' Day,
But we old-timers can remember
The eleven-eleven meaning of
The eleventh day of November.
Near month's end, Thanksgiving Day,
But some just won't be rebuffed
From naming it as Turkey Day,
Then, like the bird, get over-stuffed.
