Give it a go

Give it a go, try something new
This tale told in simple verse, view
 Compare its rhythm, rhyme and flow 
Try something new…give it a go

Gone fishing, the sign did say
On that blustery summer’s day
We stood; we waited, still wishing…
The sign did say, gone fishing

The drive was long, the car was stuffy
Eighty miles to visit Muffy
To find him gone seemed so wrong
The car was stuffy, the drive was long

So the kids cried, they were very tired
The surprise visit, uninspired
Back in the car, the kids were plied 
They were very tired, so the kids cried 

Crying children, sighing parents
A long drive home; undercurrents 
Of Frustration; all chasten
Sighing parents, crying children

There just may be a moral here
When visiting, both far and near
Call to see if your host is free
A moral here … there just may be
