No Triskaidekaphobia

Bully,
you are but a number,
not particularly big
nor small, nor bright,

Not on the clock,
your hour goes unnoted.
Nothing more than a space
between twelve and fourteen,

you can not hide
in multi-syllable grandeur.
No stowaway,
just a name that’s unfamiliar,

we have your number.
Your lore is pure jive
but, yes, it’s true, Friday the 13th
you have arrived.
