    I say we ditch this old-hat life
    of scrimping and barely getting by
    and living as if we’ll be twenty-something
    until we die. Hop a barge and flee somewhere
    with more culture to get lost in,
    somewhere with an accent we can adopt
    to amuse our friends back home.
    When we’re too broke to buy a few pints
    I’ll dive into the river and let the water take me,
    let it soak me to the bone and swallow me up,
    and I’ll hold my breath until I sink to the bottom.
    When you drag me out you can take me
    to the humane society for drowned persons
    and they’ll give us a few coins for our ale
    and we’ll stay up late with bad jokes
    and a collection of memories to amuse us
    when we stop being queerplunging twenty-somethings.
