Today's Poem

by Nick Vitrano

All right.  Today's themes that I was charged with including in a poem are:

  • Sugar Awareness Day
  • Penguin Awareness Day
  • National Disc Jockey Day
  • Cheese Lovers Day
  • Butter Crunch Day
  • Pot-Luck Day 

Here you go:

Today is a big day

For those who have the munchies.

So tuck a napkin in your T-shirt

And pull your hair back in a scrunchie.


Let’s organize communal dining -

An office pot-luck.

With all these days to honor,

It’s certain not to suck.


We’ll tie on the ol’ feed bag

With cheddar, gouda, and Colby-jack.

Yeah it’s Cheese Lovers Day,

And no variety do we lack.


And hello there sugar.

Of you too I am aware.

Break me off some butter crunch,

Though I don’t know what you are.


So invite your favorite Penguin,

But cut up your six-pack rings.

‘Cause Lovelace’s neck is tender,

And our Rockhopper needs to sing.


Rockin’ and singin’ -

A disc jockey’s delight.

Yep, it’s a day for Murphy too.

Our favorite-morning, noon, and night.
