How Not To Travel

Why don't people say what they mean?
or at least mean what they say,
the language we use can be misunderstood
and becomes more confusing each day.

I keep seeing these adverts for travelling
you can go by road, rail, sea or air,
I would like to see a demonstration
to show me how it's done,if they dare.

For travelling by road is just suicide
I doubt you would get very far,
unless of course what you really mean
is that you are going by car.

Going by rail is a balancing act
in which you have nothing to gain,
you might find it much less stressful
if you simply went by train.

Of course some people will go by sea
if you're swimming here's a good tip,
give it up and save your energy
it's much easier to go by ship.

To those who prefer to go by air
this method is really insane,
unless you've learned to fly like a bird
you're much safer catching a plane.
