Wander Lust



When moving to a new location Love to survey the land Finding the nearest gas emporiums A Starbucks close at hand McDonald's which I frequent often Food stores with all the best deals Office supplies, lumber yards Great restaurants for yummy meals Soon we'll know where everything is But exploring is half the fun Discovering stores once far away Now are just a very short run It helps to eliminate those illegal u-turns Which are really hard on the wallet Soon we'll know where everything is Reducing our petrol wallop Moved quite a number of times in life Find it exciting and fun You'd think at the age of seventy-seven My wander lust would all be done © Jack Ellison 2013

    Great one... I find my security in never moving very far... My epilepsy confuses me when I do. For me security is in the known... But even I adjust... Love your poem.
