Murphy's Mad Mondays
“Oh My, its Murphy’s Mad Monday”
Each muttering minute seems to say
A wonderful weekend's, awful addendum day
What else can go wrong, what bars my way.

Muddled Monday, Sunday’s sullen sister,
In my eyes the day’s a tornado, a twister.
The smug sun might shine soothingly,
But light in the storm, I don’t see.

Murphy’s Monday, Lady Luck is late.
All goes wrong, Murphy’s Law of Fate
Every undertaking’s a flaw, a flop, a fight
A stain, a stone, a sting, nothing goes right.

Maniacal Monday, deep, dark and dire
Every talk a fight, all anger, demon’s fire.
Good intentions charred, soot and smoke
On every breath, tickle, cough and choke.

A Silver lining, even in Murphy’s Mad Monday
The next one’s still six days away.
Author's Notes:
I have similar sentiments to Garfield in regards to Mondays

Anya- This really a neat piece of work, I likes the use of aliteration and word pictures descibing the hearts
feeling. Great work.

Good work, Anya. Might as well be philosophical about it. Looks as if it's here to stay. Thank goodness "The next one’s still six days away". This is very well done. ML

This one made me smile. Very cleverly constructed. Bet you didn't write this on a Monday ;-). ~Heike
