Fresh and Early

the weekend arrives fresh and early
I do not know what to do for dinner
so I sit around and wait, playing solitaire
holding my breath for answers that do not come
I am mesmerized by the sudden quiet and that
dog in the next room is not barking incessantly
so I guess I am lucky for tonight.

Other than that it is a strange evening full of mystery
the endless schemes of the week far behind me now
I can concentrate on the card games and super-bowl Sunday

I guess I am a fair weather fan always rooting at the end of the season
I crank the heat up in my room and it gets hot quickly
I am waiting for the rain to come or some sign of change
it always sneaks up on me and leaves me surprised when it comes
so I want to be prepared for when it finally gets here
