Blues-2

BLUES

I am no schoolboy
Nor a bored office-goer.
But not free of the Monday morning blues.

Because Some of those
Rogue offices I know
Are again going to be open today.

Where, one of these days, 
I may have to stand squirming
Caught between corruption and stupidity.

Or may be  another
Depredation by a  mean 
Neighbour is on, in my distant property. 

Where could I get
A  sure pick-me-up,
Like a chocolate , to a crying child?

    Yes, I can remember how mondays affected me when working. So glad retirement came and not a bit too soon as everyday is wonderful. Still a child, just at the wrong end of the age spectrum! Love, Lizzie
