I went to a water park this weekend and it was so much fun. The weather was sublime, the water cool and the people so varied that I felt quite comforted for being a man who hasn’t a perfected six pack. My experience inspired this poem.
Tanned brown, with a grin,
White trash slide with middle class,
All for one, they’re in.
Waters reconciling hug,
Soothes our sun kissed sin,
And in the early evening we’ll
Wish lotion on our skin.
