Climbing Mountains

climbing mountains

Climbing mountains. 
Searching for the fountain of youth. 
for that big rock candy mountain. 

Buying beer. 
Buying cars. 
Diet pills.
Too good to be true. 

Just around the corner. 
Lottery tickets. 
The eternal quest for the easy fix.
Magic, magic, magic.
The land of milk and honey 

Long neck bottles of beer.
Take a swig of this. 
The first taste is free.
Shang Ree Lah di Dah.
