Poetry Jam has the prompt 'Vacation",
The work must fit on the back of a postcard.
My dearest Mother and Papa,
Greetings from a stool in the bar:
I’ve been living on beer
As the waters smells queer
And the food tastes vaguely of tar.
The coffee’s as thick as cold honey
And my bowels are decidedly runny.
But the weather’s been fine…
And there’s this girl in room nine…
Please transfer over more money.
