Monday's a Big Old Chair

(Thank you for pic.)

Like stubbing a toe on the leg of the big old chair
every time you get up in a hurry to answer the phone,
Monday morning comes.

Maturity reminds you
it will feel better by lunchtime.
Common sense tells you
to wear shoes in the house.
Self-possession advises
you move the big chair out of the path that leads to the phone.
Inspiration suggests
you move the phone so you don’t have to pass by the big chair.
Idealism says, get a chair that’s worth stopping to sit in
and put the phone
beside it.
