GOT THE DAY OFF

by William O. Johnson, Poetry of a Father, Lover & Friend


I got the day off and the house is so very quiet.
I got the day off and I can sleep as long as I'd like.
I got the day off and all of my friends have to go to work.

I sit out front and watch my neighbors go to work.
I got the day off.

I'm going to eat all the junk food in the house.
I got the day off.

I can watch as much TV as I want.
I got the day off.

I don't have a care in this world.
I got the day off.

The sun is shining bright, my glass of tea is cold and my
sandwich is stacked just right.
I got the day off.

My schedule is wide open, no one here to pester me, and
there are more snacks to be opened.
I got the day off.

I can't stop smiling, I'm going to listen to some music and
imagine I'm on an island.
I got the day off.

HOW ABOUT YOU?
