Mondays make my head spin

I keep thinking where did my weekend go

It flew like a bird right out the door

And now it’s time to get ready

to go to school

I’ve got a test in math today and a paper due on Tuesday

That means a late night studying

Mondays put a frown on my face

I prefer Fridays and Saturdays

Not Mondays when my head is spinning

Ode to Monday Morning

Posted April 12, 2010 & filed under Notebook.

You’re ready for
school but you still
have 30 more minutes
left so you lie down
on the couch or sit.
It is the longest
30 minutes of your life.

Monday morning
is like homemade
play dough – you don’t
really know what
to do with it and
it takes forever
to wash off.
