Working Stiff’s Weekend

= – = – =

I wanted to stay up—

Late—‘cause I could!

(But working stiffs, Friday nights,

Are rarely any good.)

= – = – =

I wanted to sleep in—

(You know, like before!)

But I awakened on Saturday—

Per normal—at Four.

= – = – =

I took time to pray,

Answered emails and such;

Then ‘started the coffee:

(Really, this was too much!)

= – = – =

‘Paid bills, wrote the menu,

The day was a whir—

Before all my family

Had the inkling to stir.

= – = – =

Before most had coffee,

Eggs, or donut treats,

I was typing addresses

And posting receipts.

= – = – =

While you were relaxing

In your slippers and gown,

I was moving furniture,

And running errands in town.

= – = – =

What, exactly,

Is the matter? ‘Couldn’t say,

Except burning daylight

Isn’t how I spend my day.

= – = – =

The problem, though, Friends,

Is the pace that I keep:

It postpones lovely meetings

(And depletes me of sleep).

= – = – =

So as I am filing,

Listing, posting, and the like,

I’ll think of you dear ones—

Setting out on your hike.

= – = – =

Have fun on your beach trips,

Your golfing, your cards.

But my chores will be done,

And I must mow my yard!

= – = – =

Call me antisocial—

(Maybe I’m a jerk!)

That’s okay: Monday morning,

I’ll go back to work.

= – = – =

    :S
    You should get out more.
    If I do more chores, then maybe you’ll have more time for fun!

  3. I love it! I can SO relate to some of your postings (most). But also want to remind you of this awesome poem “Dust if you Must” http://www.ellenbailey.com/poems/ellen_218.htm

  4. Ah… to sleep in. What does that feel like again? 😉
