Armistice Day

On Armistice Day
The Philharmonic will play
But the songs that we sing will be sad

Shufflin' brown tunes
Hangin' around a-ooo

I'm weary from waiting
Down in Washington DC
I'm comin' to see my Congressman
But he's avoiding me
Weary from waiting
Down in Washington DC

Armistice Day
Armistice Day
That's all that I really wanted to say

--Paul Simon

We still celebrate Armistice Day, we just don't call it that any more. But we have a (b-grade) Paul Simon song to remember it by.

No, we don't call it Memorial Day either.

Grab an umbrella. Unleash hell. Your mileage may vary. Results not typical. If swelling continues past four hours, consult a physician.
