Oh, Say Why Has the Wednesday Post Yet to Come: A Madrigal

Oh, say why has the Wednesday post yet to come!

Mystery abounds in what the parcel conceals.

When will it arrive from my pen pal O'Neil?

Beads of my sweat shimmer in the midday sun.

I await to open the box with zeal.

Oh, say why has the Wednesday post yet to come!

Mystery abounds in what the parcel conceals.

Is he sending something even more dumb?

Has he finished his tiny boat or just the keel?

Man, I need to get a new hobby, I feel.

Oh, say why has the Wednesday post yet to come!

Mystery bounds in what the parcel conceals.

When will it arrive from my pen pal O'Neil?
