rest day

i have a job that needed attention
from monday to friday until five in the afternoon
come saturday and sunday
is my designated rest day

they say all i have to do is rest
stop worrying about the office pests
but as i woke up every saturday
it's not really my rest day

the laundry is screaming 
the kitchen needs scrubbing
the toilet needs cleaning
and my room needs tidying

sunday is even worse
i have to iron my clothes
i have to clean the porch
and only then can i go to church

saturday and sunday 
rest day is a lie
it's only an imagination
it's only an illusion
