Unsolicited Advice for Polar Plungers


Oldest son, in college, soaks up knowledge like a sponge
And was smart enough that he declined the Polar Plunge.
Several friends have called him out ('though I'm not naming names)
And, 'til someone dies, I'm sure it's all just fun and games.

Sadly, in New Hampshire, yesterday, somebody did...
Jumped into the water as the on-line challenge bid.
Now his friends and family grieve the loss of this young man.
Prompting local colleges to institute a ban.

Just because your friends jump off a bridge, it doesn't mean
You should dive in with them and be dead before 19.
Find another stupid thing to challenge friends to do;
One that doesn't leave you dripping wet and turning blue.
