Fired from a Cannon

Monday is as Monday does

Fired from a cannon with Sunday’s love

It begins unobtrusively

While snores commence noisily

Then the alarm clock rings

“Wake up!” the gray cat sings

Monday is as Monday does

Flying in on the weekend’s love

A fresh start, of sorts

A new weekday port

Sailing into vacation play

Or embraced by the office fray

Monday is as Monday does

Wheeling around on crazy love

Calling for black coffee, stat

Being a bit of a spoiled brat

Urging us to rue the day

Instead of chasing the blahs away

Monday is as Monday does

Followed up by Tuesday’s love

It buzzes like a busy bee

And tries to put us on one knee

The people doth protest quite clear

And wave goodbye to Monday’s rear

Monday is as Monday does

and slithers away with little love

It’s over, out and done

The rest of the week has won

Seven days before it again shows its face

And gives caution to the human race

Monday is as Monday does

Take it prisoner with your resilient love

It’s not as bad as you think

It will be over before you blink

Give the day your best of best

Then crawl in bed for a good night’s rest

Monday is as Monday does

Fired from a cannon with Sunday’s love

    That was fun, and I think you might have changed my mind about this day. Either that or it’s the donut I just unwrapped. I think it’s the poem. I hope you’re off to a good week!

      Mmmmm…donut!!! I woke up with a headache, Dan, but I suspect it’s more about allergies and a weather change than it being Monday.

    That is a completely relatable post.
    (Although in summer, I am really spoiled, cause I sleep late when there’s no school!)
    You’re back from your vacation and that first Monday is hard. I’m soon to end my staycation, and I suspect next Monday will not be my friend. Thank goodness for coffee πŸ™‚

    I love your poems πŸ™‚
    With each stanza, I waited for the variation on the 2nd line and its version of love … for like you implied, every week should start from a position of love ❀

      Thanks for your poetry support,Joanne! I do love Monday and that love grows every weekday until I’m ready to marry the weekend. πŸ˜€

        Not many people love Mondays. Personally, I’ve never had a problem with them. For a long time I hated Fridays because it seemed that everything that went wrong during the week came to a head on Friday.
        … but then I started having Martini Fridays after work and I didn’t mind so much anymore πŸ˜‰

      Daisy, that is very sweet of you. I don’t usually respond to the nomination other than to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It’s simply a matter of not having time to respond, especially at this time (life’s been overly busy). I hope you understand and accept my heartfelt thanks for the nomination. It has been a bright spot in my day. πŸ™‚

    Ahhhhh…Monday is as Monday does. How wonderfully poetic and true. It’s hard to realize it’s just another day…it brings its own shadows and joy and quirky beginnings and ends. Thank you for the smile!
