Sour Gripes

Don't you think it's funny
People spend a lot of money
Just to go someplace that's sunny?
               I could.

And wouldn't it be grand
If they got a lot of sand
Somewhere other than they'd planned?
               It would.

Or what if they got sunburned
And had little left that’s unburned –
Maybe even got their buns burned?
               They’d cuss.

But of course it would be better
If their days turned cold and wetter
And they had to wear a sweater
               Like us.
