Some days, they look really good
to go out, and swimming.
Some days, they look really good
to drown, drown, drown.

How do you know what day looks good
for simple treading?
How do you know which days look good for
nice floating?

Sometimes you just have to try
the water first.
To see if it feels choppy,
and to check for undertow.

However, if you like yourself
you’ll listen to your fellows.
You’ll listen to the people
that have checked that water first.

Avoid the undertow!
Don’t dive where it’s shallow!
Avoid the undertow and
you might survive the day.

It’s better if you’re just treading,
than, you know, drowning.
We want to see you later,
so don’t die in the meantime.

So, perhaps, today,
we could all go swimming.
As long as we avoid
the dangerous people go.
