A poem about a summer vacation that takes an unexpected turn
Your Momma can’t drive said my daddy,
And he swore as he loaded the bus,
Me and my iPod –we tuned him out,
Of course the baby made a big fuss.

We were on our way to Ohio,
To see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,
Seven hundred miles from our driveway,
Endless hours of the I-Spy game.

Memphis was a distant memory,
When Momma said to Daddy-  it’s time,
My water just broke— it won’t be long,
Daddy frowned and said --ain't that a crime.

Can’t it wait til we see Chuck Berry?
Momma screamed and hit him with her purse,
Get me to the hospital right now,
Or they will take you home in a hearse.

So that’s how I spent my vacation,
Camping in a maternity ward,
Taking pictures of flustered new dads,
Reading magazines and being bored.
