A Message from Saturday the 14th - a non-holiday poem

A Message from Saturday the 14th
Greg Pincus

You see? You’re still here.
There was nothing to fear.
The 13th is a terrible tease.

And me? I’ve been waiting,
Relaxed as a bird on the breeze.

I know I could mention
I get no attention,
Yet truly, it doesn’t annoy me.

And so I just say,
“I’m a fabulous day.
Don’t waste me, my friends. Enjoy me!”

I was gonna dazzle y'all with a fancy word for the fear of the number 14 instead of the standard triskaidekaphobia comment... but it turns out there isn't a real term. Man, the 13th really does get all the attention. So unfair....

I'm going to keep this to read every Friday the 13th. To remind me that Saturday the 14th is waiting for me.

This is a good poem to read with my class when the next Friday the 13th hits.

My sympathies to you, Saturday the 14th. Not unlike the middle child- plenty about you that is special but not mentioned as often as your sibs!
No one will read annything into that, will they?
