I’m on a tropical vacation
Fruit drink elation
In an island nation.

Sipping by the seaside
Watching the tide
Oh, I must confide,

This relaxes the tired and weary.
And days become bleary,
Then eyes become teary

As I realize that the conclusion
Is nearing its completion.
Reality clears my vision

As I down the last little flute
Say bye to grapefruit,
Reality slowly dilutesโ€ฆ

It seems like I arrive and then blink
Glass empty of drink,
Then itโ€™s time to thinkโ€ฆ

Of saying to this paradise, โ€œShalom!โ€
Of going back to sweet homeโ€ฆ
And greeting the garden gnome.

Fun thing about this one – it seems to pick up where week 25 left off! That hasn’t happened before. ๐Ÿ˜„

I stroll to the waterโ€™s edge.
I watch the humans walking,
As I peer from behind a hedge.
All are jangling – what they call “talking,”

Going about the daily routines,
As if I were not even here.
I step out where I can be seen.
I recall the armlet โ€“ human, I appear.

It is so interesting above the water;
Hard surface below my feet,
And the sun seems so much hotter.
I wipe sweat from my brow โ€“ Iโ€™m beat!

I return to the pier, release the pin,
The magical bracelet falls free;
My feet are replaced by fin,
As I dive back into the sea!
