THE RELIGION OF FRIDAY

office-pic

If we are alive at five

We practice the religion of Friday.

We go to work and do it with religious observation.

We are more religious than we know.

In the elevator and in the cubicle we practice our religion

With our house plants and our hellos.

We have made it to Wednesday and know

Thursday could go fast or could go slow,

But it will bring hope, and if the meetings go well

We might go to lunch and have something languorous to tell

Our coworkers, who live here and there.

The commute and the weekend are holy

And the vacation is holier still,

But the religion of Friday knows this Friday

A god will sit on our window sill.

    Graves, I am calling your employer to ask why they employ fascists. You do not DESERVE a job, especially in any educational setting (even though it is just an admin financial aid post) !

    Fascists are known for their intolerance of the views of others.
    Who’s the fascist here?

    ‘Twas brillig and the slithy toves
    did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    all mimsy were the borogoves
    and the mome raths outgrabe.
