Panting up the thousand-pedal hill
rain hammering on my cycling cape
arms out searching for escape
eyes blind with ragged temper tears
cooking over a flickering candle
sleeping cold on rock-hard ground.
It’s a simple no-brainer to explain
why I’m on a mission to ban camping:
and image change: someone invented glamping.
Glamping- definition from Oxford Dictionaries, image from here.
A form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping: glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life’s luxuries.
Two birds with one stone: Wordle 168 (where I didn’t manage to use Ghosts) and day 6 at the camping challenge to write a ten line poem belying what we hate about camping. The first nine are our complaints;
the tenth line is the “Oh, never mind, this place isn’t so bad.” revelation.
