Psalm of Summer

Source unknown

Now it came to pass that spring turned to summer again. God's people raised their voices and said:

"Recreation is my shepherd, I shall not stay at home; He maketh me to lie down in a sleeping bag; He leadeth me down the Interstate each weekend. He restoreth my suntan; He leadeth me to State Parks for comfort's sake.

Even though I stray on the Lord's Day, I will fear no reprimand, for Thou art with me; my rod and reel they comfort me. I anointest my skin with oil, my gas tank runneth dry; Surely my trailer shall follow me all the weekends this summer, and I shall return to the House of the Lord this fall."

But then it is hunting season and that's another psalm.
