Day 13: Paraskavedekatriaphobia

There are a few people out there
Who are intimidated by today of all days
For that I empathize with them
Because today is a day like no others.

This day only happens every so often
Yet, when it appears on the calendar
It sends people into a frenzy
However, it's much worse for them.

The day is ominous
With tales of horror spun to coincide
For this unholy date
Is one of the most infamous of the year.

In this year of 2017
The date happens to fall in October
Falling into par with Halloween
Ratcheting up their paranoia to 11.

I still try to wrap my head
Over why Friday the 13th triggers them
I know the day is synonymous with the lack of luck
But to them, it terrifies these individuals more.
