The Final Fling

A bright sandy beach
Sailing out of the reach
Once more unto the breach?
We only get one life each

To stand in the sun
To fight or to run
To start what had not begun
Or to settle for just having fun

The journey is too short
We sold what we should have bought
Our world boils down to a dot
While the sun shines ever hot

Gather the resting thing
Put it in your sling
Open your mouth to sing
It’s time for your final fling

Nothing Really Matters, Except Everything
