Monday Morning Blues

Here's the article I wrote for the college magazine :)

With a few snoozes, begins the day,
It is cold and the sky is gray.
Waking up is quite a strain.
From going to college, I can refrain.

After a few minutes, my mobile goes beep.
My castles in air, collapse in a heap.
It is a message from my friend,
Attending classes is the new trend!

My aching body says a big no,
I reply, asking him to go.
I pull up the blanket and close my eyes,
To disturb my sleep, come a few flies.

I try my best to swat them away,
Unfortunately, they are desperate to stay.
Surprise test, the next message reads,
Exactly the shock, Monday Morning needs.

To brush my teeth, I jump up and run,
Moaning to myself, this is no fun.
There is no water to wash my face,
Wearing my clothes, to the mess, I race.

I gulp the hot water and skip the food,
Start my vehicle and put on my hood.
As I near class, everyone comes out,
GT, I hear them shout.

I pray they’ll change their heart,
How more badly could a week start!
Deep down, I was happy I could sleep,
I went back to my bed and collapsed in a heap.
