BONUS: Bibliophile

Bibliophile (24 Feb ’17)

 

For eight hundred bucks I can buy

A ticket one way to London.

For three hundred bucks I can try

A road trip to Cali for fun.

For nine ninety five I can get

A glimpse into Chatterly’s mind.

For four ninety five I can learn

About Huck Finn’s chaotic life.

For free I can get the good book

From a hotel collecting dust

And to distant past times I look

And see a God wanting my trust.

 

To travel is nice if you’re rich:

You need freedom, money, and time.

But reading’s great for all people:

All you need is a creative mind.

 

Till I can visit India

I’ll read the Bhagavad Gita.

Till I can see New York City

I’ll follow Daisy and Gatsby.

Until I go to Alaska

I’ll see White Fangs in the tundra.

Until I can visit Japan

I’ll reread the manga again.

Until I can afford to leave

I’ll pick up a book and read.
