  1. On a Whim?
    It seems sometimes
    if not for a whim, nothing,
    not a thing would I have done
    planning was not a strong suit
    had never worked out when I did
    so why bother to plan and fret
    or stay home and do naught
    it’s more fun to just do
    a whole life of whim!

  2. It was on my list
    but I never thought it would
    be a thing for real
    until Emerald Isle’s waters
    surrounded my bare behind
    whimsical? I think so
    fun? You betcha!
    Do it again?
    Splish Splash!

  3. So, there we were
    Bob and me
    a cavalcade of bottles in front of us

    “It sound like a good plan… you should go”
    and off to Salsiccia he went.

    I’m sure it worked out for him.
