The A Mused Poetry Contest Oct 31-Nov 6/2020: Road-trip Disasters

This is a TRUE STORY! Only, it was my parents dealing with my little sister. Enjoy 🙂

There’s that smell

I can tell

She threw up, again

Will this ever end?

We pull over

To clean the car

We’re not nearly there 

Our destination is far

As we scrub the floor mat 

And her little car seat

Little did we know

We were in for a treat

Parked alongside a lovely, vast field

Ignorantly assuming a safe place to yield

Off our gal trotted, right into it

And here’s the ironic, “humorous?” bit

Two seconds later, we hear a sharp cry

It blew back the grass and tousled the sky

Baby girl was stuck

My, oh my  

Our vomit-covered darling

Had stepped in a cow pie

Thanks for another fun prompt,

  1. This is hilarious and not funny, Sara. I am reliving all of the details and the smells. I think Alisha was around three-years-old and had a serious little face throughout the events. Obviously, not thrilled. I blame your Dad for taking the short cut to our camping spot. We were lost on a very windy, circuitous farm road. Funny poem. Yes, road-trip disaster.

      1. A little more to be A Mused about: Little Alisha was feeding Misty (our dog) cubes of cheese. Misty threw up the cheese on Alisha. This did not help Alisha’s motion sickness. So she threw up. Ergo, stop the truck….and the rest is history. Yes, TMI😊
