"While steering clear of accidental adversaries" ~ oh how I love this ~ I can feel my sidesteps and shoulder-scrunches and peripheral look-outs as we speak. (so-to-speak!)

Yes, I see what you mean. Excellent recounting of an experience!

hmmm....Remembering my cubicle days less than fondly and this paints a perfectly un-nostalgic picture of them Sandy. Great poem, not so great memories

Jerks have quirks which can spoil the works wherever one lurks. Good one Sandy...CharMin

Sandy, you leave no doubt, Mondays are the potholes in the road of life. Great write. Delighted. Thanks.

And how you made poetry of it!

I'm not a fan of Mondays either but your poetry breaking out of it in spite of the jerks on a rough road makes mine seem a bit smoother. Much appreciated.

And poetry has a way of breaking
Through even in an artistic drought

Congratulations! Very worthy POTD! I love how this all ran together and was full of irony.

UGH This is my entire day after week day described to a T. It is the poem I've been working on in my head, but found to difficult to write. You said it just right! Congrats on POTD!

I think everyone can relate to this piece. Well done!

Perhaps all people are created jerks -- it's just that men revel in the exposition thereof :) Worthy of promotion, this post of resignation.

Another wonderful poem which I find very easy to relate to, what a world we live in!

I know this feeling. I think it is common to poets. Too bad poets had not a poetry factory to go work for, whose owner was a poet him or herself and we were allowed to whistle while we worked on poems such as this. simply wunderbar.
