The truth of Monday

An out-of-control rampaging calendar's revenge
 
Is announced by laughing clowns and monsters;
 
"Hheeeerree'ss Monday!" sounds over loudspeakers
 
Against morning and doom; coffee seems helpless
 
To lend a hand in this age-old battle of wills
 
Between your rationality and Monday's reality
 
Your rationality tells you the day's the same
 
As all the rest, but Monday knows the truth,
 
It has a black cloud asterisk attached to it,
 
A lone-wolf mentality on which it stands alone
 
Leers at the other six, "Welcome to down!"
 
Screams through a cold hearted megaphone

What's funny is because of an accident-caused disability, I no longer work, and STILL, I get the Monday blahs; thanks, 88
