Least of These


Saturday and Sunday get all the glory.

Friday too,
with all its happy hours
and promise of the weekend.

But the results are in
and painfully it’s obvious
who’s in last place.

You’re not even the middle
of the week
like Wednesday is.

Not to mention you’re still close enough
to Monday for the drudging week ahead.

Even with all its cases
and blues
at least Monday has notoriety.

After all, hatred is an emotion
but indifference is the far greater insult.

You’re nobody’s favorite,

And if nothing else, Thursday is
The day before Friday.

But Tuesday,
You’ve got nothing going for you.
Could there be a worse day?
