Evacuation Day

Just as Chicago has its celebration of Casimir Pulaski on March 3, Boston celebrates Evacuation Day on March 17.  This is the real reason the schools are closed and the bars are open and everyone wears green.

Today is conveniently the day
The British left Boston
To its own devices.
Everyone there claims a holiday
On this
Evacuation Day
The bars are filled
With people dressed in green
Shamrocks on their lapels
On this convenient day
When the British
Went home.
