Spring break

Midterms were tough. I need a break!

Time to head to Florida for spring break.

Pandemic, pandemic, everyone cries

I don’t know anyone that’s sick, I think it’s all lies!

So I’m not sick and my friends feel fine.

Going down to party like it’s 1999.

I am not worried. I have no fear.

To me Corona is just another beer.

Yes, I hear that this threat is invisible.

That’s okay, I am 20, I’m indivisible!

Up north, they say wear a mask, down south, let’s party!

So we didn’t wear one. Now we are home and we’re sorry.

Our extended families are dropping like flies!

All because we listened to that Governor’s lies.

Come on down to Florida, have some fun!

Just take coronavirus with you, when you are done.

5 days of fun, and I tell you it’s not worth the price,

If you care about your loved ones then you need to think twice.

Why should I care if you get drunk and sedated?

You can’t hurt me, I am vaccinated!

I cannot you see. I am 40. Science has made me aware.

You maybe 20, hopefully you will grow up and care.

About one another. Humanity. The bigger picture.

You are not the only shining star. You are not the only fixture.

I hope you live long enough to learn everything you do has a price.

Next time, just think. Then you don’t have to think twice.

I am 40, watching you party on the news.

I already know the outcome, and you are going to lose.

If I could go back in time, I would slap the young me.

Instead, here I am at 40 watching myself on TV.

Spring break, my friends, is not a test.

I remember some song that said it best,

I know that when I was younger I was a lot Dumber,

But I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger.
