Surviving Through the Week

Office Space

Monday strikes with fangs
A jolt of reality
That many wish would fade
Tuesday is slightly better
The sting is gone
Replaced by a serene focus
Wednesday is halved
Beginning with groans
And ending with hope
Thursday is a slog
As if molasses is underfoot
Yet we manage to proceed
Friday holds a cheer
But only at the end
When the worst is behind us
Saturday is eternal light
A return to rest and life
The shedding of some stress
The antithesis of Wednesday
Relief transforms to dread

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    That is certainly an accurate description of the week. Of course, things are even more fraught with tension in the world for obvious reasons. I’ll also spare you a reference from The Cure with your poem.
