Today is my Name Day,

which occurs nine calendar months
after my birth day : the feast day
of St Anthony of Padua
who had a pet pig.

Name-days used to be celebrated,
especially in Russia, when everyone
was named after an archangel or a saint.

Now we are much more egotistical,
and allegedly more 'individual'.
This is not true. 
Sheeple breed in their billions,
individuals are very few. 


[Sant’Antonio da Padova, original name Fernando Martins de Bulhões, (born 1195, Lisbon, Portugal—died June 13, 1231, Arcella, Verona; canonized 1232; Franciscan friar, doctor of the church, and patron of the poor. Padua and Portugal claim him as their patron saint, and he is (bizarrely) invoked for the recovery or return of lost property.]
