Outta Your Lane

Updated: Jul 13

Our Julyfourth cookout

was down at the Shore

There were frisbees, air balls

cold beers and more

Phil flipped the burgers

and boiled buttered corn

Key Lime pie donuts

came courtesy of Lauren


Cousins Jim and Skip

talked rival college teams

The younger girls whispered

boys of their dreams

Gramps and Uncle Gabe

sat and took it all in

The sisters on mom’s side

had a permanent grin


But Uncle Gabe kinda

spoiled the holiday

Brought up politics

in a confrontational way

Most folks turned

to evacuate the spot

But Gramps got riled

and gave his best shot


You’re outta your lane

over your skis

stuck in the mud

blowin’ in the breeze

That’s the way we think it is

Makes us say: Come on what gives!

We’re all here to have some fun

Test the surf, enjoy the sun


Our Christmas Eve party

took place at Lauren’s home

Jill brought her boyfriend

whose name was Jerome

There was all kinds of food

and liquor as well

Lots of new stories

to laugh about and tell


Out-of-town family

put gifts by the tree

My sister Joan’s toddler

was content on her knee

Gramps and Uncle Gabe

sat and took it all in

Skip tried to keep their words

centred on kin


But no, Uncle Gabe

had other stuff to say

Politics once more

in a confrontational way

Nobody warned Jerome

who said what he thought

Now Gramps says Jerome

is the best guy Jill’s brought


You’re outta your lane

over your skis

stuck in the mud

blowin’ in the breeze

That’s the way we think it is

Makes us say: Come on what gives!

We’re all here to have some fun

Eat some cake, drink some rum
