This is the End of S Grundy


Seven days with Solomon Grundy,

Til we dug his grave on a Sunday


And I grew up thinking that he lived a week


I wake up to his birth on a Monday,

And walk the week for Solomon Grundy


White noise can’t take him away,

I see him every day


In maternity wards at hospitals,

Funeral parlors and wedding chapels


I see him


A short life marked by landmark beacons

and agitation…


Well, I was born on a Sunday,

And bred to the tune of Solomon Grundy


I am the same as he in his nineteenth century


Grundy


Bound by your skeletal axis

And genetic legislation


You didn’t write the rules - You are the hapless illustration


Grundy


Solomon Grundy,

Born on a Monday,

Christened on Tuesday,

Married on Wednesday,

Took ill on Thursday,

Grew worse on Friday,

Died on Saturday,

Buried on Sunday.

This is the end

Of Solomon Grundy.[1]
