Vacations O'er  

The common man is back to Work,
To pay the bills you see,
His obligations , he will not shirk,
So he's off to work,...O.T.

Hard at work, hard at play,
Ideally it balances out,
"But it's never really even", you say,
"I want more playtime ", you shout!

Ah, such is the life of the Workin' Man,
With no fortune to provide his leisure,
He earns his time off, not grand,
But he savors each moment his pleasure.

He works so hard both night and day,
As if he were a servant indentured,
But his heart awaits for the next GET-AWAY,
And for another AWSOME ADVENTURE !!!

And the other will save your soul.

Welcome to Passions!

And when the "working man" needs a little adventure
inbetween earned days off,
he comes to passions to read our literature
and vacation in our forum loft!
