                              My name is Saturday Clown.
                              I live at the end of the week.
                              By the time Monday to Friday
                              have finished making a hash of it,
                              there's nothing left for me to do
                              but put on a diamond patterned suit,
                              a frilly collar, a pom-pom hat
                              and go cartwheeling through the day.
                              Invariably I slip on a banana skin
                              and go crashing into Sunday.
                              He is NEVER amused!
