Exotic Places I Must See

I've traveled this celestial ball visiting many places of beauty and renown.
My world travels are over, but there is many an American city and town,
That I really pine to visit before I cease to function and cash in my chips.
I reckon you could say these places are on my bucket list for country trips!

On my grand tour I will visit Tick Bite and Lizard Lick, North Carolina.
While in the area I'll see Shoofly and also Spider Web, South Carolina.
On the way to Texas I'll visit Turkey Scratch and Toad Suck, Arkansas.
In the Lone Star State I'll drop by Buffalo Mop, Cut and Shoot and Hee Haw.

I'll visit Bean Blossom when I swing through Indiana, the Hoosier State.
In Ohio I want to visit Spunky Puddle and Knockemstiff on the same date.
Just a short drive south, I don't want to miss Monkey's Eyebrow, Kentucky.
Hopefully, I can travel to Monks Misery, Maryland the same day, if I'm lucky.

Since I'll be in the vicinity, its a short drive up to Pennsylvania to Intercourse.
Then on to Cricket Corner, Vermont and Hell Hollow, New Hampshire, of course.
Heading west through Colorado I want to see Punkin Center and Cripple Creek.
I'll take a side trip to Bug Tussle, Oklahoma, for more excitement to seek!

While in Washington I'll take the opportunity to visit the town of Opportunity.
And down in Oregon I'll make a special effort to visit Scappoose and Sublimity.
Lord willing, I hope and pray that there will be nothing my tour to forestall,
Then I can truly pass in peace and say that I have seen and done it all!

NOTE:  This is a fictional write written with considerable tongue in cheek.  It is not be taken seriously.  A lot of the stuff I write is written for the pure fun of it but a lot of comments I receive think I'm dead serious! The names of the places are real, however, and I wrote it purely for entertainment!  Enjoy.

    I like the way you wrote thia. I hope you do get to see them all, I live in Texas and I never heard of those towns before. They must be very small. Anyway if you do come to Texas, go to Round Rock it's north of Austin on I 35. It's the name of the town, but also the name of a Dougnut place where they have the Dougnuts. People come from everywhere just eat them. I enjoyed the poem with the funny names....... Lucilla

    I bet you can see all those places in no time, Bob. They all seem such fun places with unusual names. I always love to travel in the 50 states. Great poem!
