Preparing to go to law school,
My last summer vacation-
I remember when I was younger-
Adulthood was far off in the distance
I would drive around on my little toy fire truck
Or I would play Nintendo,
Then later Super Nintendo
Until my favorite TV shows came on
Singing along to Kids Incorporated
Journeying into the Hundred
I remember Today’s Special
And the Little Koala
And David the Gnome
And I can’t leave out Real Ghostbusters!
Even when school seriously started,
In the afternoon,
I would still go into childhood’s dreamland
And watch Disney Afternoon-
And the weekends had
Ren and Stimpy
I remember spending all day on Final Fantasy 3 (I didn’t know it was 6 then)
Skipping lunch to beat Kefka.
I had no worries
About living on my own, or jobs, or anything else
I had no future
But summer vacation
But now those days are over.
High School and college stired me from my childhood dreams
And now they will end for good.
Oh, to go back to that magical time for just one day!
When ghosts were real and the Ghostbusters always vanquished them
And Inspector Gadget always caught the bad guys
And Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy were real
And, however fleetingly, magic was possible…
