August is summer's last call

Late August arrives

A farewell to the sun

The summer fun wanes

And how much have you done?

Been swimming, gone fishing?

Played hooky enough?

Or are you still wasting

The days on dumb stuff?

Like hours on Facebook

Updating your page?

Or tethered to Twitter?

Get out of your cage!

The cage of bad habits!

The cage of routine!

Don't waste this late August

Attached to a screen.

Yes,Groupon'sin trouble

It gasps and it slumps

And poor old Mark Zuckerberg's

Down in the dumps.
