Getting Ready

We’re getting ready for a long, long journey,
Lists of lists of shopping, and the packing to be done.
Never go with two clocks sailing on the ocean,
Either carry three of them, or simply take the one.

We’re getting ready for a long, long journey,
Every variety of weather guaranteed.
Look at all our travel stuff! the luggage isn’t large enough!
Spread it on the floor again and think of what we need.

We’re getting ready for a long, long journey,
Sturdy shoes for trekking and a quake hat for the sun,
Vaccines, visas, vital medication,
Put the tickets safely now, and do not lose the Won.

We’re getting ready for a long, long journey,
Sun-cream, midgie-cream, Germolene tubes,
MacBook or drawing book? paperback or Kindle?
Angry Birds to pass the time, or maybe Rubik Cubes?

We’re very nearly ready for a long, long journey,
Take a tender glance back at our lovely little home.
Why are we leaving it?  soon we’ll be missing it!
Forsaking our fireside, for an aerodrome.
