I wrote a PG-13 version of the first two lines of this and sent it to my son Eric in Brockport as a joke. A day later, he sent me no less than 46 lines that he had added, which also deserved a solid PG-13 rating. I laughed, teased Eric about having too much free time on his hands, and told him that, unfortunately, our poem would never see the light of day.

But as the weekend approached and I started to get things together for Lake Placid, I couldn’t get his poem out of my head. There were too many good lines to bury it or delete it forever. So I edited it, came up with this G (maybe PG) version. Maybe you can guess where changes were made. Enjoy.
