Marbles summertime

Summertime when July and August were all mine

By Marc Algernon. Summertime.

I remember summertime.

Summertime
Click to order Mega Marbles SET OF 24.

July and August were all mine.

Two entire months of no school.

No more teachers, no more rules.

No more pre-dawn showers.

Now I can stay in bed extra hours.

My days were spent with marble pitch.

Summertime
Click to order Sougayilang Spinning Telescopic Fishing Rod.

Catching fish in a dirty ditch.

Fence jumping, mango pelting.

It’s not trespassing when we’re all laughing.

Mr Jones would shout and shake his fist.

When we reach home we would get some licks.

My river limes were crayfish catching and long hiking treks.

Summertime
Click to order 7″ Google Android 6.0 Tablet.

Now it’s Black Label Rum and geera neck.

Our kids’ summertime is pre-set… you can cure the bore with a tablet

No more selected shows on the TV.

You can simply YouTube anything you want to see.

No more barefoot football on hot pitch.

Now FIFA 17 is the PlayStation switch.

Summertime
Click to order PlayStation 4 Slim 500GB Console – FIFA 17 Bundle.

I remember eating mango till my belly want to buss.

Now my son can’t even climb and my daughter don’t like mango… says it’s too much fuss.

Time for it to be different, time to cure all their ills.

I simply sat right back and just didn’t pay the bills.

Soon the Smart TV went dumb and just wouldn’t say a word.

Summertime
Click to order Survival Kit EMDMAK Outdoor Emergency Gear Kit for Camping Hiking Travelling or Adventures.

My daughter said, “Daddy this is quite absurd.”

They walked to the front door, hands shielding their eyes.

And took a look at the real world for the first time.
