B is for....
boys and blue things and beaches
of a Sunday afternoon
we bundled up and walked the beach
scrambling over the rocks and skipping stones at the shore line
we came across the blue thing
imprinted on it was the only clue as to what it was
as the bulk of it was buried in the sand
First Joey tried to pull it out of the sand
he found a stick and wrapped the yellow rope around it to get a good grip
older brother Jack came along and tried as well
They even tried working together....
after a bit they decided to catch up to dad
who used the opportunity to discuss
the irony of American corporations trashing the beach
dug into the sand so deep that even working together we can't pull it out
