Noneday

Have you ever had a Noneday?
It's a day that disappears.
You were hoping for a fun day,
But you somehow shifted gears.

As the hours slipped through your fingers,
Like a sifter filled with sand,
Time, which often stops and lingers,
Wasn't quite at your command.

Though you thought you would partake in
Some activities outside,
Obligations let no break in,
So that sunshine was denied.

Most weeks don't contain a Noneday.
That's a good thing,  there's  no doubt,
But before it gets to Monday,
Step aside - I'm getting out!

    Does sleeping in too late on a Sunday because you worked too hard during the week count as a noneday? I love the ending. This is so cute!

    I'm becoming quite a fan of yours, it's probably in the rhyme. I'm just amazed how you make them fit so seemlessly every time. The concepts come around so nice. I sure enjoy reading them twice.
