God shed his grace (#PoetryMonday*)

On this Presidents Day,
we look to our founding fathers,
builders of our nation,
paragons of the Republic,
dispensers of freedom and dreams,
to provide historic doorbuster deals
for the essentials of American life,
computers, cars, and flat screen TVs.
Of thee we sing.

  When I was a kid, we celebrated Lincoln's birthday and Washington's birthday separately. While their images were used to promote sales we still held a sense of respect for who they were and what they did. Now? It seems all that has been lost. What do you think? How do you view or celebrate Presidents Day?

Here is a link for more information on the day and former presidents:
