NaPoWriMo Day 6: “Crash Driver”

Happy Easter Monday! Happy Day 6 of NaPoWriMo!

Oddly enough, today’s prompt is to write a poem about annoying Mondays – is Germany the only place where today is a national holiday?

I love that Bangles song, by the way, especially that one line: “Doesn’t it matter / That I have to feed the both of us / Employment’s down” – pop social commentary, there you go.

Crash Driver

Back in my suit, tie neat and slim

My desk full of papers, the papers full of war

And Full House at the watercooler

We’re dippin steeply, it’s all a mess

Can’t say I care much – it’s Monday, after all.

PS: This poem refers to the Black Monday of 1987, when stock markets crashed worldwide.
