Itís time to ďlive it upĒ said Jane with a little hiccup
She was sick and tired of church and lectures from the old bishop
It was time to have some fun; it was time to whoop it up
She wanted beer in her frosty cup, not cold water like an old church grump

Jane didnít care if her friends gossiped about her secret screw-up
She just didnít want her parents to show up
While she was in the bed of Jacobís little red pickup
Hoping she didnít get drunk or knocked-up

Itís still unclear how that night got so mixed-up
Next thing Jane knew she was trying to sober up
Before telling her parents she had been in a smash-up
And was in a hospital bed like a sad broken pup

Jane decided it was time to fess-up
And do a little growing up
Before her father locked her up,
Or the old bishop showed up!

42 And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.Ē Matthew 10:42 NLT

Interesting telling of an all too common problem. You've crammed an entire story into a few lines. I love the ending.

Short and sweet and very neat. All so true, poor Jane, boohoo.

This is a cute, playful little poem. You made me smile with your slightly sardonic sense of humor.
