MONDAY 13th APRIL 2009.

A day in lieu of another that is always week ended
And has become bleaker down the years; seen but
Not observed, its message unheard and, although
Its home along the calendar may change, the
Opportunities offered are always accepted with
The same open hands that take it without
Consideration anymore. The events represented
By these holy days have been replaced with
More mercantile concerns: for the children, who
Have learned to look forward to its vacation and
With the expectation of a relative’s reward, and
Adults for the certainty of four days break from
Work. Still, we skive less than most other lands,
And work longer when we can, so surely our daily
Sacrifices merit a little indulgence each Easter.
