Extra, Extra, Extra, Extra 25% Has Now Been Sent!

Wow, we finally get that extra 25% of the years that has passed. It only took four years for it to have amassed. Wait, that is normal, right? Damn, so I get to sleep an extra night.

4 years you say.
Come what may.
4 years and it's here.
Let's give a cheer.

It works well.
An extra day is swell.
Screws up the calendar thingy.
February and March days are out of sync on the calendar magiggy.

But I want more.
I'm greedy at my shore.
I think we need this.
It would be bliss.

100% more vacation,
At every station.
Hey, 4 years saved it up.
So it shouldn't be a hiccup.

100% more pay.
4 years came our way.
So give that big old raise.
No need for a hateful gaze.

100% less taxes.
The IRS relaxes.
Wishful thinking there.
But I had to share.

100% more play time.
I could use more rhyme.
Plus a toy or ten too.
Bring in some that are new.

100% more winning.
Unless you go sinning.
Then you just get a disease.
But yes, more winning in every way please.

100% more growth.
That's a fine oath.
Can learn 100% more things.
Maybe even create wings.

100% more sales.
Buyers hit the trails.
That works for me,
And my book tree.

So what do you say? Need 100% more pay? That would sure be nice. Tax man wouldn't even charge a price. Hey, we get 100% more in the form of a day, what's wrong with 100% more of fun stuff at play? Any plans for the extra day or just slave away? The cat will go and pass some extra gas out my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. Leap into a new day.
    More time to play.
    Also more time for things to go a stray.
    Best to keep weirdos away.
    But enjoy the extra day.
    4 more years to come back your way.

  5. Leap year is a bonus
    Devised by old King Cronus
    An extra day or take away
    Makes no difference to your pay

  6. 1988 was a leap year. Feb. 29th was the night I went into labor, and my first born missed being a Leap Year baby by 2 hours (thank goodness). :)

  14. Leap year is so strange
    It makes me rearrange
    My thoughts. But I can't figure it out
    Were I born this day, I'd shout
    Hey world, I'm not even a teen
    I suppose that's kinda keen
    But I don't wish to repeat
    Those years
    Now that would bring on the tears
    So leap year is not a thing
    That makes me want to sing
    Bring on the spring.

    Replies
    1. Spring works more
      No snow galore
      I'll take that
      And avoid the leap year scat

  21. I would be a lot more excited by an extra day,
    if it meant I could stay home and play,
    being at work on a day that comes once ever four years,
    does nothing to make me erupt in cheers.
