In Our RV in Australia, a Poem by Lucy

 

In Our RV in Australia

 

I’m having a long car ride.

Like 40 hours long.

I think I’m getting car sick,

And something else is wrong.

 

There are chairs in the bathroom.

There’s a tabletop on my bed.

We are driving from inside our house.

We are driving on the left.

 

There are very tall mountains,

Which can be a little strange,

Especially when you’re from Florida,

A mountain-less kind of range.

 

The GPS has an accent,

But she tells us where to go.

“In forty meters turn left,” she says.

How on earth can she know?

 

I’m sorry to say this is all true,

From the inside of an RV.

Then we get to the campgrounds.

Phew!  We are finally free!

  2. I can’t wait to share this with our class, Lucy! This is perfect timing, as we are practicing for our speech contest in February and are knee-deep in poetry.
    P.S. I’ve always wondered what it felt like to drive on the left. :/
