Too many cars,

Too many kids,

Too many farts,

Too many *shoobee’s…


Too much traffic,

Too much noise,

Too much anger,

Too much talk, too graphic…


No speak English,

No read English,

Okay so towed you get,

No, no, no, I’ll move my car,

Before we call the guy wearing a star…


Too many accidents,

Too many drunks,

On vacation they think they can do what they want,

Way too many on skateboards & bikes, punks…


(**shoobies** = day trippers that bring their own lunch, initially in shoeboxes, not spending anything on stuff at the beach...)

Since when does a fart bother you? Crowds? I get that and relate big time. Patrick

I know of the frustration written here. Lancaster County PA tourists! But it only a few who screw it up for everybody. I don't really enjoy the beach, but my wife loves it.

Peace out Ed,

I am not a big fan of the beach, Ed; so I can appreciate where "you are coming from." Love and peace,

Yes, agreed, but guess who saw sharks!
The beach this summer was so amazing, shark and seal filled, but back to the subject which is I really did enjoy your poem Ed!

Thanks for expanding my vocabulary. It should come in handy next time I am in Atlantic City. I liked the line about the guy with the star. That stood out as the best part for me.

Ed, you nailed this one perfectly. It is reminiscent of the "National Lampoons Animal House". With not one but thousands of Blutos(John Belushi). Organized chaos. A riot about to breakout into a hockey game. May peace and love be with you my friend. Jon Michael

I"m with John, although we don't have that problem here in Alpena, Mi. They have grills that we get to bring or own stuff, but as far as the kids sometimes, yep, sometimes there's just to many. Not sure who out numbers who, the kids or seagulls, on some days. This is way to cute, but hope you get to have some downtime on the shore, before winter hits.
