Instructions

Before you go off to the beach with a run,

Heed these instructions for fun in the sun:

 

As we all know, the earth’s outer crust

has begun to diminish, decay and rust.

 

Not wearing sunblock when you pose and strut,

Means you’re a lunatic, crazy—a nut!

 

It’s best to avoid any harmful dark tints.

We suggest reapplying after two-hour stints.

 

Purchased in bottles, tubes, even tins,

There’s no excuse for the greatest of sins.

 

Make wearing sunscreen an instinct!

The End
