Treasure Island

Saturday


Saturday
Taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r to glide into Sunday at midnight
Is named after the planet Saturn
Circled by a halo of several rings
So it is sometimes known as
The jewel of a GIANT race track which, stretching for millions and
Billions of kilometers
Is the Solar System
Which is why people who love jewels of any type
Should love Saturdays

And everybody should know where the days of the week came from
So that they will not groan
On every Sunday night and Monday morning
And struggle through long, dreary Tuesdays and Wednesdays
And Thursdays as well
And be happy only on Friday evenings, Saturdays and Sundays
For all seven have a special meaning each
Whether or not they want to accept this strange fact
Saturday is not the king of the week
And Sunday helps to keep Saturday more like the other days
By being another day of rest, just like Saturday

But it has also been said that
Saturday is named after
The Titan in Roman mythology called Saturn
Whose name is shared with the ring decorated planet
The god of agriculture and
The Bringer of
Old Age
Thus Saturday is named after the god of time
Saturn's day
Is on the last of seven days in the week
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and finally,
Saturday
