The Last Monday

The Last Day was a Monday
When the End of Days was nigh
The Last (good) Day was Monday
I put on my scarlet tie
The one with all the palm trees on
And yellow fish with stripes of blue
And green. The weekend fog was gone
The Autumn rain retreated too
I walked to work without a coat
At corners drivers stopped for me
On Tuesday we lined up to vote
On Monday–Last Day–we were free

    An image of a one fish two fish tie cheers me. As did awaking on Tuesday to the sound on the radio of Iz singing a gentle, Hawaiian “Over the Rainbow.”
