They Say Not A Good Beach Day

On the TV Talent getting paid a salary fee In control of distributing information Monitoring backstage scripted decisions Dude was inland Miles from the ocean sand Reading a line not as a joke Instead a journalistic quote “Rough Seas” Translates to “Surfer Cheese” Through the darken sight Waves chop interpreted by some as 'all right!' Quiet on the beach Only flying birds are in reach Peaceful sounds Crash down While salty air Seasons the shore with a crispy flair Energizing the setting saying ‘I care’ Then settling in for a challenging natural stare Standing there board at their side Looking into the water’s curly eyes It is a gamble one must take Enticed by the gigantic wake It is now time the dice should be thrown Feeling warm after a gust is blown Wearing armor wet and tight Having more courage than a knight Ready to swim head first into a fight As a ripple starts a climb A surfer who has time Chooses the exact moment to unwind Sliding to catch the pitch Knowing how and when to bail out with a ditch Balancing on the wooden device Wondering if God’s creation is going to be nice Picturesque picture soon is captured At any second it could be a disaster In the end Calm waters do descend And that is when The surfer finishes the glide With a kind gesture, ‘good bye’ Only to return back to the tide Needing another good ride Surf was up on this day Despite the skies being grey Sun worshippers stayed at home While surfer diplomacy made peace all alone Loosening an angry heavenly grip After listening to humans on a simple long dog ship Returning to a placid look Making friends luring the anglers’ bait and hook
