Itty Bitty Ditty
I am totally impressed and just a bit amazed
It would not be a great exaggeration to say that I was dazed
By the opinions from all the hubbers who commentary gave
In support of my first ditty's petty rants and rave.
I guess that I just wanted for the world to know
Of all my pent-up disappointment when I found I couldn't go
Take that final spin to points on earth because I lacked the means
Something that I have not done since I was in my teens.
So I write this little ditty to thank those many few
Who expressed their views in ditty one and now read ditty two.
You gave me pause to plan anew and that is what I've done
An older van I did buy to fix up and to run.
To be the vessel I command on roads I've not yet been
May take quite a bit of time due condition that its in.
It needs so many things for sure, safety is the key
But I resolve to make it work, to see it roadworthy.
Off I will go to see our land's amber waves of grain,
Mount Rushmore and the Badlands, hope it doesn't rain.
We will visit the Grand Canyon before it fades from sight
As it slowly fills of crap, the result of human blight.
Sorry for the commentary, I do tend to digress
When confronted with an eco loss, no cleaning of the mess.
I now revert once more to my story of the van,
A redo with great purpose, for my survey of the land.
It may be six months or more to make my craft into a home
But its worth whatever time it takes because I need to roam.
So once again I say thanks to all of you
For giving me the benefit of your advice so true.
It means a lot that people care especially when I'm down
And even more when you're aware that I am such a clown.
If you are alone, does that make you the smartest guy in the room?
