Happy Monday! Coffee Cup Ad
Mercury News, Monday, 1-21-2019, C4

Happy Monday!

Mercury News ad of coffee cup
with "Happy Monday!" on surface
greets my day like a buttercup
for "Monday's child is fair of face."

After a relaxing week-end
most people don't like to return
to work— but Monday is my friend
that I look forward to and yearn—

It's my favorite day of the week
when Labs are open again—
for me Monday is never bleak
feeling the fresh heavenly rain,

writing poems in HTML—
drinking from the old sacred well.
