Poet's Day.

In all my working life they were there,

Those very special days.

They occurred every week,

They still do in my retirement,

But are not as special

As when I was working.

Those Fridays were always special,

So very special.

They were POETS DAYS,

Push off early,

Tomorrow’s Saturday.

    I saw a comedy show with a posh wife. She said 'Oh, I suppose SOME people have to work weekends!' She was too posh to do so.

      I have known people like that, I have worked many weekends in my working life - never a problm though.

      Being self employed soon knocks that out of your system but it doesn't help when it has become established in your partners lifestyle.
      Disappointments ensue.

      Hi Andy, You've said it well, very well indeed, you've brought the past to life, that wonderful Friday feeling, captured here to perfection. Joe
