The Day of Equinoxity
On this day of equal night and darkness
All should seek to be extra-nice.

Discover ways to promote a world of closeness
And harmony in all forms of justice.
Equal this day are those named Phyllis and Alice
And those gents named Maurice and Elvis.
And those living in Connecticut and Kansas
And those in ghettos and who are stateless.
We think of the shy and voluptuous
And the self-righteous and the religious.
Yes, and don’t forget the priest and the waitress
The struggling student and members of congress.
Remember those on Facebook and wireless
And those who are wild and those sleepless.
Those who live in worlds we call placeless
And those in places which are timeless.
Let’s not forget those in worlds of loneliness
Who constantly are in need of an atlas.
