298 – A nice tan

The world needs a vacation.


The pressure keep rising.
Our tempers grow shorter.
Before we even realize it
We are at each other’s throats.

Why don’t we all
Take some time off
And just lay down
In some secluded beach?

Enjoy the ocean breeze
While basking in the sun.
We might all get a nice tan,
And even breathe a little easier.

Just a crazy idea, I know.
But it sure beats waiting
For the mushroom clouds
To melt our skin.
