THE BADDEST DAY
(12/12/06)


welcome
to the work
week

bitch

my name
is Monday
and your ass
is mine

bring in your
tanned
rested
and ready attitude
I will wring
the weekend
right out of you
in a matter
of hours

bring in your
cappuccino
double café latte
or just straight black
no sugar
and I will turn
the chemicals against you
just when you need them
the most

bring in your
eight hour
noon to one lunch
two fifteen minute break
expectations
and I'll roll
one problem
after another at you
until the sky is dark
and your car
is the only one
in the lot

I am Monday
you pathetic peon
I own your reality
and your dreams
I anticipate
your every
twist and turn
there is no escape
or deliverance
you are a mouse
between
my paws

at midnight
my sister Tuesday
takes over
and she has
not
slept
well
