DIFFICULT DAYS

by John Yeo

Charlotte was despairing of work on Mondays

It always too busy at her waitress station 

Mondays were always her most difficult days.

~

Yet the diners were satisfied and full of praise

Of her efficiency and always careful attention 

Charlotte was despairing of work on Mondays.

~

Charlotte started the week in a dreadful malaise

Then gradually got over her initial frustration 

Mondays were always her most difficult days.

~

Work was always a joy during her happy phase

Everyone was impressed by her dedication 

Charlotte was despairing of work on Mondays.

~

Her contrasting demeanour never ceased to amaze

She happily worked hard without compunction

But Mondays were always her most difficult days.

~

Management decided her work to appraise 

Ordering a four day week as the only solution 

Charlotte was despairing of work on Mondays

Mondays were always her most difficult days.
