Family Trip

Written for:  Poetic Asides #352
Write an “are we there yet” poem.

Dad, how much longer until we’re there?
I’m sure we passed this road before.
Remember that diner, Eats Here?
Dad, how much longer until we’re there?
I have to pee, and Tom won’t share
the popcorn–he is such a bore.
Dad, how much longer until we’re there?
I’m sure we passed this road before.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
