Dream Vacation
~~~



Our  family  car  broke  down
in  a  little  tourist  town
It  was  going  to  take at  least  a  week  to  fix
~
The  only  place  to  stay
within  fifty  miles  they  say
A  hotel  that  overlooked  a  'magic  ocean'
~
The  meals  an  expensive  treat
but  a  family  has  to  eat
and  drinks  were  priced  to  really  set  you  back
~
The  managers  brother  Bill
owned  the  repair  shop  down  the  hill
and  the  bill  was  added  with  our  room's  expenses
~
Now  our  credit  card's  at  the  max
our  cash  barely  paid  the  tax
and  our  savings  account  has  nearly  been  depleted
~
As  we  checked  our  room  once  more
there  was  a  sign  upon  the  door
' Stop  have  you  left  anything ! '
it said
~
Then  from  my  marker  came  graffiti
underneath  and  not  so  sweetly
it  said
' Stop  have  you  anything  left ! '
~~~


 I'm not ugly!
I'm just visually challenged!

AH, Vacation,
A Wonderful expectation,
But we're oft' not prepared,
For how the vacation has fared!

Thanks for sharing your passionate journey!

 Poetry is the expression of thoughts which awake the higher and nobler emotions, or their opposites, with words arranged to some accepted convention.........or maybe not! Dennis :^)

LMBO!!!!
That was a heck of a turn this one took.
It`s nice to see that you can take your "Dream Vacation" and turn it into something to make other`s laugh.
This is GREAT piece Rex
One that I`ll be coming back to when ever I need a laugh.
Thank You

Sometimes when life gives you lemons, you just have to make lemonaide.  I'm sure you can survive anywhere, vacation or not, with your sense of humor. Loved this!

You have a wonderful sense of humor, it's very delightful to read your poetry, and know I've gotten some therapy with it.

RufffRyder ... laughter rules ... sorrow drools ... I try not to let sorrow have the upper hand


Mistikman ... Yall come back now ... Hear?

Marge ... Graffiti can be fun ... as long as we don't get carried away with it


Martie ... I like lemonade ... used to sell it when I was a kid ... 'last summer'

Lost dreamer ... you snuck in on me while I wasn't looking ... Glad I can help brighten your day ... Thats the reason I love to write
