What do you See? Jan/29/2019 – Tuesdays


He found a new friend.

Good friends, he loved to visit on Tuesdays.

Tuesday was the best day to visit,

He always felt good about visiting of a Tuesday.

But he also knew he needed a quick escape.

What if everything went pear-shaped?

What if she didn’t like him of a Tuesday?

Where would that leave him?

So he took his escape with him

Tethered it to her front door

Kept it fuelled and ready to go,

Just in case.

His last friend he also visited of a Tuesday

Until she decided he’d called often enough

For her to grow tired of him.

She stopped entertaining him

Said he was dull and suggested if he came again

She’d set the dog about him.

He disliked dogs; he and dogs had that in common.

So dressed in his best Tuesday suit

He knocked on her door and waited,

Looked once again to check his escape was at the ready.

Seeing her at the door, smiling widely

He entered, never sure what might happen

But always in anticipation,

After all, it was Tuesday, and he felt good on Tuesdays.

  1. Itis indeed Tuesday Michael, and a lot of nice things happen on Tuesdays.

    So, will his friend receive him today? Or must he scoot quick and make an escape? Which, a once a week man, sounds like the type even I could accommodate. 🙂

    Entertaining story Michael. Sure thing that Tuesday is a good day. Let’s hope she continues smiling, making it a perfect Tuesday, though he does have his escape there at the door. This made me smile: “He disliked dogs; he and dogs had that in common”. Thank you.
