Don’t go changing

Don’t go changing, trying to please me

No, don’t, really..
I love lust you dearly
I’ve told you thus, a million times
you must believe me.. (I hope that rhymes?)

Your eyes of blue, I mean, brown
Make my smile into a frown
Whoops, I’ve made an awful mess
Now I’ll have to just confess.

Twas Billy Joel that made me do it
Her bright face, towards me, drew it
I know I’m not an innocent man
Please forgive, if you can?

Yes, she is an uptown girl
She caught me in her upstate whirl
But I’ve come back to Earth, again
Surely, we can just be friends?

Tuesday

Tuesday reigns supreme
Queen
Of NeitherHereNorThere

Not quite Wednesday
Duke
Of AlmostMidWeek

Too far to be the
King
Of NearlyTheWeekend

Tomorrow makes Tuesday
Earl
Of WeekendsOver

Why is Tuesday?

…and so

Tags

Ingrained with the labour borne
Through his adult life
From a loving family, torn
A land, to save from strife

Naive, child, less than age expects
18 but so young
Conscript with brown epaulettes
Trained to shoot a gun

Father’s tenuous life is lost
Widow-maker, He
A First (and only?) War, the cost?
Man of the House: decree

Home to a different future
A business debt to pay
No life of articled culture
At home, he’s meant to stay

The debt is spent and lifted
So then a wife to take
My Father and my Mother wedded
A family to make.

..to be finished

Monday

Monday marshals its forces
Marching on my lethargy
Wiping away the weekend smile
Demanding attention!

Alarmed, I watch its horses
Gallop across my psyche
Depressed by the calculated guile
Ringing salutation!

Mired in Sunday sloth
Subjugated
Submissive

Monday makes its mark

Sunday

Soaky Sunday
Sulking
Sun soon?
SUPER!

Shuffling slippers
Shaking silver sequins
Silently Southward

Sneaking sideways sights
Shafts of sunlight
Subtle, shimmering
Sense the Sun

Saturday

Saturday comes easily

Sometimes
It sits
Waiting for something to happen

Often
Chores wait for Saturday

Usually
Saturday doesn’t know when to stop

Today
I’ll wait for Saturday

There’s much to do,
little that’s necessary
But many to please

That’s Saturday, for you.
