Bad vacation

Bad Vacation

I took a vacation to Broome
And rented a nice little room
I tripped on a stone
And broke a leg bone
And this it did fill me with gloom

I borrowed some crutches, did I
But let out a terrible cry
A crutch it did break
I fell on a snake
I thought I was going to die

As I laid in a bed looking sad
The bed broke and I was hurt bad
My two hips were broke
And it was no joke
The shrink he proclaimed me quite mad.

Written for Carolyn's 'Vacation humour' contest.

    Hi Carolyn, I could really kick myself for making this mistake, you should have disqualified me for this. I thought I had checked it out thoroughly. I will learn through this. Thank you for placing my poem, my friend....Peter
