Monday Again

Monday again, I hit the clock and snooze for ten
Minutes in the shower, three for coffee and news
‘til I’m out on the street, shoulder to shoulder
With all the stockholders, one hand in my pocket
With the other I’m calling

Another recorded voice of you
Another beep I’m talking to
Another day without reply
Another Monday morning goodbye

Rainy days and Mondays, get me wondering why
I’m waking up alone, can’t get you on the phone
I’m here, you’re gone, who knows how long
Two minutes ’til the train, one to go insane
With the other I’m calling

Another recorded voice of you
Another beep I’m talking to
Another day without reply
Another Monday morning goodbye

Friday nights I’ll be alright, I say I’m doing fine
Saturday starts brand new and then I think of you
Watching Sunday’s game alone, I try your phone
Monday morning your empty spot is my first thought
My second I’m calling

Another recorded voice of you
Another beep I’m talking to
Another day without reply
Another Monday morning goodbye

If I had two dimes to rub together
I’d throw one in the river
And wish you back forever
With the other I’d be calling

Another recorded voice of you
Another beep I’d be talking to
Another day without reply
A final Monday morning goodbye

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to write and aubade. These are morning poems, about dawn and daybreak. Many aubades take the form of lovers’ morning farewells, but . . . today is Monday. So why not try a particularly Mondayish aubade.
