After all, chocolate is an emotional band aide. ;)

Woke up on the wrong side of the bed.
There's a mind numbing pain at work in my head.

Wash my hair and comb my face,
Something died in my mouth, where's the toothpaste.

Grab a quick bit of breakfast and rush out the door.
Can't find my keys they fell on the floor.

Finally find them and start the car.
I'm gonna be late, well that's about parr.

Hit every stop light on the way to work,
Look down and notice there's a stain on my shirt.

Forgot to let Spike out, he's crossing his legs.
Have to go back, this morning's the dregs.

The absolute bottom, the pits, it's the worst!
What else could happen, it seems that I'm cursed!

Wait a minute, it's Monday, first day of the week.
No wonder this day has begun so bleak.

Come ahead Monday, get it over with now!
I've got bon bons and chocolates and a little brown cow,

To soothe and to comfort my poor shattered nerves,
And to bind and to buffer the slings and the curves;

Do your worst Monday, come on have a fit!
You can't scare me, I've got chocolate!

I can't get through any day with out dark chocolate if my day is messed up. My Manic Mondays are never good. I have had a few like yours. I always need a double dose when the day gets off to a bad start. Great poem. I really enjoyed reading it.

Good ONE, jUDY. I could never return to my house as you did because my boss would have a fit if I was late to a class! Like you, I have lots of chocolate stored away but it's all dark and mostly organic coz that is GOOD for us. Nicely done here.
