Tides of adulthood begin sweeping away the years of hormones and lust,
The shores of professional life
In view on the far side of the stage.
Between-
A degree,
Friends,
Drinks,
Parties,
Youth;
The last taste of mock-freedom before crawling ashore
To face the jungle-
Mortgages,
Careers,
Families,
Children,
Settling down;
Beginning your island to send you seed
Into their years of hormones and lust.
