More Than Five Times?

Let me count.
I must have started
at the beginning of March,
that first Tuesday.

This is the final week of April.
There were five Tuesdays
in March alone.
And four more this month.

So yes, it’s definitely
more than five.
How many more?
I missed at least one.

OK, I’ll take a look.
Hmmm, hard to remember;
I didn’t write it in.
Could have missed two.

That would still
be more than five.
Let’s say definitely seven,
seven at least. So far.

But see, I don’t think
I’ll continue.

made up my mind.

More than five, yes
but not much more.
