This week I’m in Hawaii and have just turned off the news,
And focused on relaxing, taking in some sunset views.
So my world consists of trade winds and walking on the sand
And sitting by a palm tree with a Mai Tai in my hand.
This week I do not wonder, ‘Is the market bull or bear?’
My big concern is where to place my reclining poolside chair.
This week I will not wonder, ‘Should I buy or should I sell?’
But just relax in places that I’ve come to know so well.
This week there’ll be no sniping or my sarcasm to share;
Just the squawking from the birds that fill the morning air.
There is nothing to be learned, as I will not try to teach,
As I sit and watch the waves as they crash upon the beach.
I know this week is ending and my life will rearrange,
And my lazy, ‘island attitude’ will surely have to change.
I know that soon my office will be getting lots of use,
But please forgive this one last day where I can just ‘hang loose’.
