The fourth enlightenment

Anyways thank God for Saturdays
because I’ve finally understood
that it ain’t no bleedin’ good
to have the five days beforehand
if you ain’t got nothing planned
for the weekend.

I lean towards sedentary
and watch a documentary
it seems to float the boat I’m on,

then go on to a discotheque,
don’t dance because
I’ll break my neck
but
I have eyes and watch it all,

the boat I’m on becomes a wreck
and Sunday finds me beached,
at least I reached out and I understood
it ain’t no never any good
if you ain’t got nothing planned.
