End of Summertime Blues

Ode to a Swimming Pool 

By Rodney Dean Roy

Andrew loves this swimming pool
Loves it more than summer school
Loves it more than puppy dog drool
Andrew loves this swimming pool

Laurie loves it even more
Even more than I love Thor
Loves it more than she loves me
On that point we both agree
x
Every weekend, summertide
You would find us at poolside
Mask and snorkel, swimming laps
Reading comics, taking naps
How they love to splash and swim
Only rain could make them grim
They say the housing market’s down
But that’s not true in Des Peres town
The house was sold, the pool with it
Our summer refuge we must quit
x
Andrew loved that swimming pool
It sure was great for keeping cool
Laurie loved it more than him
Now we don’t know where she’ll swim
I hope some day we find another
‘Cause it’s too far to visit Brother
