Every summer!!!

Summers finally landed
we've waited long enough
we've descended on the beaches
and we’re looking slightly rough

We’ve piled on the calories
been starved of vitamin D
squeezing into cozzies
too small for you or me

That pale white skin is burning
to a funny shade of pink
we've all been starved of sun rays
and been knocking back the drink

Stampeding to the beaches
as the mercury finally rises
inhibitions disappearing
In all our shapes and sizes

We do it every year
this year's no exception
we binge bathe all day in the sun🌞
to darken our complexion

We’ll show off all our white bits
as though a badge of honour
then watch it peel and disappear
and wonder why we bother?
