Every Third Day

January third,
Feb. six,
The ninth of March…
You see the tricks?
The twelfth of April,
Ides of May
And June eighteenth
Should show the way.
How ’bout July
The twenty-first?
Not yet? Oh, man,
Your math’s the worst!
The twenty-fourth
Of August…right?
9/27!
(That’s tonight.)
You’ve one more chance
For satisfaction:
Halloween Eve!
(Hint: The fraction,
Month divided
By the day.)

That’s right,
You’ve got it now.
Hooray!
