We've had enough of travelling

We’ve had enough of traveling. We’ve had enough of travelling At least by sea and air The noisy ferry cabins The crush of Ryanair Maybe we’ll drive a hundred ‘k’ To hotel or ‘B&B’ For forest or a city break (For we live close by the sea) We’ve seen a little of the world Though far less than our kids And their kids will see more than them For that’s the way life is With gammy legs and short on hair Now being home is best Our own things all around us Our own bed for a rest We’ll lunch in our conservatory Gaze out across the fields Ignoring bumph from Thomas Cook And all those special ‘deals’ The sparrows on the bird-bath The neighbours calling by A friendly chat, a glass of wine Without a reason why No, we’ll go no more a-travelling. At least by sea and air We’ll watch the world on our big teevee From the comfort of our chair John Hanscomb, 2018
