The Working Week is Over Now

The working week is over now
Put down your tools, prepare for play.
Those pleasures bosses don’t allow
Are on the way.

The sun will rise on Saturday
And see the world’s a happy place
With not a hint of dreary grey
On any face

Two days without the rodent race
Two days to live and learn to smile
The weekend brings a state of grace
That lasts a while

Though weeks are vile
Weekends have style!

Author notes

In a sonnet form created by Jem Farmer, that derives from my beloved “Pope Style” sapphic odes.
