A Vacation at the Beach

By Elton Camp

Roscoe looked forward to his vacation all year
“I hate the city and want to get away from here.”
The mountains were where he usually went,
But this time, it was at the beach it was spent

Roscoe spent all day on the sand enjoying the sun
But later on that night, he wasn’t having much fun
His skin felt sensitive and began to radiate heat
And by the next morning, it turned as red as a beet

Because of his lack of good sense, Roscoe did earn
Face, back, trunk, arms legs painful first degree burn
Outer layer of his skin peeled off.  He looked a fright
Never again a vacation spent on beach did him delight
