After a drabby week of having my anxiety fried… (yay!)
Salvaging the bitter remnants of a throttling Thursday,
After being swayed by the raging intrusion of a wild Wednesday
When this choose day constantly reminded me of failed choices,
A humble gift of barbequed scars, when I simply aimed for shining stars,
Bleeding bites beat for a mourn day/Monday
To clean the piled carcass of yesterday’s sobs
But thank God it’s Friday ,
After a tedious week of having my expectations fried… (yay!)
Saturday, we observe the Sabbath
Bath into oceans of despair,
Those that a senile Sunday will attempt to repair,
But for now
We thank God it’s Friday.
