Dan Time | Ode to Tuesday

Google Image: Tuesday (nice) .

ODE –noun
a lyric poem typically of elaborate or irregular metrical formand expressive of exalted or enthusiastic emotion.
(originally) a poem intended to be sung.

Note Me: I have no idea how poetry is supposed to be formatted. Call me a barbarian with no culture, and I'll ask you to give me the date you last wore a tux and ate something you couldn't hold your breathe to swallow enjoy.

Tuesday Tuesday Tuesday
Who's Day is Tuesday?
I don't know (whisper echo)
We've forgotten you Tuesday
You are after Monday
and You came before Hump Day (You Sly Fox, You)
Prime Time television has left you alone
All alone, Like the Culkin kid (I saw that movie in the theater in 1st grade with my friend Pedro who moved to Kearny and never saw again)
We still wake up to you
We still spend time with you
But do we?
Do we give you the time you want?
Tomorrow or Today (depending which day you read this)
It's a New Day
A Happy Tuesday

You've been Def Poetry'd World.
