Monday Moanin’

An old style alarm clock.

Monday morning, here again.

Alarm clock sounds, moans begin.

Hurried breakfast, shower then race

To do my hair, put on my face.

Highway’s packed. Commute begun.

Road rage attitudes, blinding sun.

Texters, twitterers, phones to ears.

Skillful maneuvering, shifting gears.

Sunday drivers, one day late!

Careening around them, get irate.

Coffee splashes and radio blaring.

Commute then ends amidst the swearing.

Into the parking lot just on time

Solid day’s work, to make a dime

Pack it all up, head back to the ranch

The traffic’s worse! my face does blanch.

Into the driveway, home at last!

The evening passes much too fast.

Repeat four times; a weekend and then

Monday comes –  we’ll do it again.
