The History of Monday

By Philip Gelatt

Monday, the destroyer, the beguiler, the warlord and reaver, wants you to know that it's here
and its not going away

Monday wears the skin of Tuesday
but it is still Monday

Monday is known in the hinterlands as Wednesday
but it is still Monday

Monday banged a chick named Thursday, it drove her crazy and mad with lust for human blood
so while it maybe Thursday it acts as a Monday

Friday is the last man standing
lost in a jungle of days, stalked by the beast and beheader known as Monday

For Saturday and Sunday are just lies told to us by the subconscious shadows of mind, lies meant to keep us sane
