A LOT OF NONSENSE

A LOT OF NONSENSE I was sitting in my room, Looking at the stars, When all of a sudden, I thought I saw Mars, I went out of the house, And looked all around, I got into my rocket ship, Straight off the ground. Milky Way Dairy, Here I come, My pockets are full, To spend on my tum. Oh, gosh how many People are here, Guess I’ll have to queue, That’s pretty clear. I got out of my ship, And saw the rotator, I turned and saw a Wow kind of waiter, A strange looking alien, And laden with shakes, And to my relief, I also see choc. Flakes! The stools are actually , Floating in mid-air, And the waiters mingle Around, with such flair. I say to the waiter I’ll Have a Sundae, Oh Never mind, Make that a Monday! What a menu this is, And oh what a choice, After spending my money I’ll have no voice! But truly folks, The Milky Way is a treat, And you come by Rocket ship, Such a cool feat! Take the family there, And on arrival you’ll find, A Drive-thru and menu That’s One of a kind! So first take a left, And then a sharp right, And the Milky way Dairy, Is almost in sight! And there in the skies, And amongst all the stars, Lies a dream world of Sundaes, Flakes and Milky bars!

HI rico, I can only hope, but Ricky and Robyn are entrepreneurs through and through, and travellers, don't see children in the picture unfortunately. Maybe our other son, things seem to be getting serious with someone! Yasou and poetry wishes, Jennifer.

Thanks Silent One, One can only imagine what it will be like for the fist settlers on Mars - a one way ticket - wow - quite a venture - perhaps much better there than on planet earth! Thank-you for a wonderful comment, Poetry wishes, Jennifer.

Not only do I love this poem, I fnd it funny how sometimes by complete chance poets touch on the same topics, even if in such different ways!
