“Casimir Pulaski Day” by Sufjan Stevens

“All the glory when He took our place but He took my shoulders and He shook my face and He takes and He takes and He takes.”

Goldenrod and the 4H stone
The things I brought you when I found out
You had cancer of the bone

Your father cried on the telephone
And he drove his car into the Navy yard
Just to prove that he was sorry

But nothing ever happens

I remember at Michael’s house
In the living room when you kissed my neck
And I almost touched your blouse

In the at the top of the stairs
When your father found out what we did that night
And you told me you were scared

Sunday night when I cleaned the house
I found the card where you wrote it out
With the pictures of your mother

On the floor at the great divide, with my shirt tucked in and my shoes untied, I am crying in the bathroom

In the when you finally go
And the nurse runs in with her head hung low
And the cardinal hits the window

All the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see his face
In the in the window

All the glory when he took our place
But he took my shoulders and he shook my face

Happy Casimir Pulaski Day! 
This holiday, which commemorates the birthday of Polish-American Revolutionary War Hero General #Pulaski, 'the father of the American cavalry' is celebrated in several U.S. states including #Illinois &  🇵🇱🇺#Wisconsin🇸

Why is Sufjan Stevens’ song about the death of his friend from cancer named after a holiday celebrating a military hero?
