Why people believe what they believe and why.....Friday the 13th

Another Day's Upon Us By Franklin Price 7/13/2018 Another day's upon us It's the thirteenth of July Another bad luck Friday Did you ever wonder why? Paraskevidekatriaphobia If you fear it it's name Derived, as usual from the Greek How psychiatrics play the game Friggatriskaidekaphobia also Norwegian goddess is to blame In English she's the reason She's where Friday got it's name But I've digressed as usual Where is this bad luck coming from? I'm now about to tell you Did not start this poem for fun If you want a modern reference Read “The Da Vinci Code” The Knights Templar unlucky As they traveled down the road Friday, October thirteenth Thirteen oh seven was the year The Knights Templar were arrested By the king of France, oh dear! It wasn't lucky for the knights Off came their heads with sword That Friday was unlucky More than the the knights then could afford If you wonder where I found this Well I found it on the net Wikipedia was the source I Google searched it, you can bet If interested you should go there There's much more for you to see Almost everything you need to know But not in poetry
