Sharing the joy

What’s happening is,
the joy of Friday is being taken away
the working class have had their day
there’ll be no more weekends at the boozer
Friday is going to be your loser
in the five-fold accumulator,

on the plus side,
Monday is not going to be that day
when the world turns grey
and you have to work to earn your pay
which you would have spent on Friday
but now you won’t.

it’s six of one and half a dozen of your mother
as Freud would have said if he hadn’t been dead
for a long time.
