A Poem by Matt Decker

It's a good time for splashing.

"Come on in,
The water's just fine!"
Tell me friend --
Ever hear that line?
Truth be told,
It's not always so --
Sometimes that blue gold
Can be some kinda cold.


You know it shows
No bold try
When those clothes
Are nice and dry.

Please do excuse me, Miss --
I wish to dish you this:
None become soaked
On the boat --
That's a fact
And all she wrote.

Have you heard the word, Sir?
The poolside is reserved
For guys who haven't tried
Or conjured nerve and verve.

Dave can rave and make waves
Or sedately behave
And if Joyce makes the choice,
She'll noisily rejoice.

Chet will fret with regret
For he has yet to get:
"Him" can't swim beyond the brim
Unless willing to get wet.

Shallow end just a shadowing --
Toe-dipper or deeper-leaper?
One's a blooper,
One's a keeper --
Begin, my friend, to dive right in.
