Yeh a day off school
and all day to fool
race down to the pool
rock splashing real cool!

Time out with the mates
not thinking of girls or dates
never contemplating our fates
family, mortgage or bank rates

Just sheer fun with no aggravations
oblivious to future obligations
unaware of life’s consternations
indulging without abstentions

As we age commitments grow
study work bring in the dough
sport and kids always on the go
We become exactly what we sow
