Here for a good time

I was walking down the street
And a guy passed by
Singing, “I ain’t here for a long time,
I’m here for a good time.”
From the song by George Strait.

And I suddenly thought
That I keep thinking for long term
I keep thinking of where
I am going to end up:
Managing relationships
Before they end,
Saving myself from trouble,
Because long term matters.

I keep thinking about the long term
But what about trying
To have a good time?
Does it matter where you end,
If you’re not having fun
Running to the end?
“Here for a good time
Not for a long time.”
I just want to have a good time.
Long time takes a long time.
I’ve set my destination,
Now let me enjoy
Walking through it.
