Working for the Weekend

This lady takes the early train

Wiping sleep from my eyes

To come back home again

Wash, rinse and reprise

Decades now spent

Chasing the enterprise

Of the adage

Early to bed, early rise

Not mentally healthy

Certainly not wealthy

And questioning the wise

Tonight at dVerse Poets Pub Kim asks us to write a Quadrille (a 44 word poem, not including the title), using the word “Early.”

  1. Oh yes, i so agree, but I couldn’t have spoken it so eloquently. Very smooth voice and delivery. Believable like this came straight from you and not some contrived verbiage . Very nice.

  2. Ah, Sheena Easton – I remember her. I also remember the tiring routine of ‘Wash, rinse and reprise’. Like Toni, I’m retired and wiser for it! I enjoyed this very much.

So? What do you think?
