In a Hotel Room

The Hotel brochure came by post and told me all that I should know. With not much time to make a choice, I booked my Room and set to go. The pictures showed a sunken bath, with fluffy towels and marble loo; a typhoon shower, terrazzo tiles, it even had a bidet, too! They asked me, did I want to have a whopping king-sized double bed, indeed, perhaps, I’d much prefer a boudoir – for the newlywed? I gazed upon a sandy beach, with swaying palms, a lavish view, and, just nearby, the swimming pool looked crystal clear and sparkling blue. So, here I am and weary from a long and somewhat tiresome flight, to find my Room is rather small and looks onto a building site! ~
For Black Eyed Susan's Competition.

    oh Charles, yours is so clever. I think Susan will really enjoy yours. she has great humor. Also, this reminds me of that awesome movie called "the best ever Exotic Marigold Hotel" (something like that). It's about Europeans who get the shaft when they go to a hotel in INdia. Have you heard of it?
