On This Day

NaPoWriMo

Today is the day Romulus and Remus founded Rome

Today is the day Charlotte Brontë and Queen Elizabeth II were born

Today is the day the Red Baron was killed.

Today is the day rain isolated people even more than usual from each other

Today is the day a clown gave away smiles on a corner

Today is the day animal balloons joined a union and demanded their own zoo

Today is the day all clocks stood still so people could relax a little

Today is the day the tambourine man begins a lively serenade

Today is the day little kids skip rope

Today is the day big kids skip classes

Today is the day adults skip their medication

Today is the day we all get stoned.

Day Twenty-One
