Hump Day Poetry #1


Give us a leg up

One two three

Yes that’s the way

I’m over the hump

Or rather on top of it.


Those Tuesdays are murder I say

It’s all go go go

Nothing like Mondays

Good days Mondays

Everything is fresh

There’s a sense of energy

You’re reinvigorated

Ready to go for it.


I love Saturdays and Sundays

Days for nothing but me

Lounge around

Eat out

Play some sport

Chat up my girl

A bit of respite from

An overvigorous weeks end.


Friday’s are great days

There’s such an expectation

The weekend is within grasp.

Some Fridays are slow

Others fly by

Nothing like Tuesday

Where everything slows down

Snails make more progress

I just want to lie in a ball and sleep.


By Wednesdays the worst is over

There is hope for the weekend

Thursday is tolerable

Friday is relax and be ready.

Hump days should be declared a holiday

Then we’d go straight from depressing Tuesday

To hopeful Thursday.


From the top of the hump

It’s a gentle slide

Nothing gets in the way of a weekend

No work

No demands

Love the weekends.


Give me hand will you

Gentle now

I like to slip into Thursdays

Ease into it

Not overdo anything

Thanks, I love a good hump day.
