|~ Sucking Seawater Sucks ~
When life deals me a crappy hand
I stick my head down in the sand
I tell the seagulls I'm okay -
and they squawk back, "No freakin' way!"
I've always had to be real strong
Just shirk it off when things go wrong
But I'm not feeling strong no more -
I'm headed for the nearest shore!
When I get there, I'm jumpin' in
A concrete block tied to my limb (ankle didn't rhyme)
Saltwater burns, I must admit -
But right now I don't give a .....er......crap!
It burns my nose, my throat, my eyes
And suddenly - I realize...
My situation wasn't bleak
Till I went on this "deathwish" streak!
I flail about - I'm sinking now
I must untie that knot somehow!
I'm sucking in - seawater fast
I don't know if I'm gonna last !!
I see you as I gasp for air
You wave & shuck your underwear
You reach me in the nick of time - -
You want my towel?
Too bad - it's MINE!
(Batting eyes & dangling his undies in the air! )
Yeah, I know - rediculous waste of ink...I'm putting my pen down now, and am gonna go rearrange my shoes or something more constructive....sigh. Thank you hero!
