St Random’s Day

The 6th of June is ev’rywhere, it seems,
It turns up all the year.
This av’rage day has gained the fate
Of ev’rybody’s av’rage date.
The 6th of June has crept into my dreams,
The Swedes have whispered in my ear –
Or maybe D-Day’s up to tricks ?,
Or the Devil claimed oh-six-oh-six ?

I guess we each of us have such a day,
For tripping over, bric-a-brac finds –
It pings our sonar, winks our eye,
And score us another proof, we cry !
So paternless paterns will work their way
On into the slots at the back our minds –
We know they’re wrong, but still they fix,
Just random rolls of double six.
