I like Motels.
The rooms are efficient
and clutter free.
The simplicity is the key.
Decors may change.
Mints may or may not
be on the pillow.
You may only get a bit of soap
or specialty shampoos and lotion.
Even the number of pillows
can differ depending upon.
Grandiose or bare necessities,
a room is a room.
It is a destination.
A place to stop
and take a load off,
catch some z痴
or watch TV.
It is home base,
You can order in
or go for carry out.
You can hit the vending machines
for a quick snack,
or go to Joe痴 Crab Shack.
You can go a million and one places
or nowhere at all.
You can稚 imagine my thrill
as waste baskets I fill
and dirty towels left on the floor.
I can leave it all behind me
when I walk out that door.

Leave it to you, Lori, to write a poem about a motel room, and you were spot on with every line. I loved  i!

Well, I call 'em as I sees 'em, Jerry. I swear I'll write about anything! Hmmm, I wonder if that is a good or a bad thing. ~L
