As I said of yesterday’ poem, that it may have been fitting for a Sunday, then this new poem, may be fitting for a Monday, but I hope it’s not too fitting. Have some fun with it but, heed the message.
I don’t usually like to post new poems, as that tends to put pressure on me to “fill the gap” so to speak. But what the heck, enjoy!
Mondays that require medicine, last three times longer than the average Monday… THAT’S A FACT, and it has been personally and thoroughly documented, by a “double-blind” study.
Savor your Monday, it could be worse!
Oh, the “Hoolies” come to visit
in the morning,
after the night
you’ve had before.
Yes, the “Hoolies” come to visit
they shake your hands
and spin the walls and floor.
Then they send you off in search
of that same dog,
but, that is when
the “Hoolies” disappear.
And along with them
they take away the thick fog.
But they’ll be back, upon the morrow,
have no fear.
But, when the “Hoolies” come to own you
you’re in trouble.
Yes, when their visits
now grow shorter everyday,
’cause you wake up in the morning,
And with a double shot
is how you’ll start your day.
So a visit from the “Hoolies”
should give you worry,
for it could be a sign
they’re moving in.
For like a visit from an in-law
in no hurry,
both will have you reaching,
for the gin.
