Camping not a favorite for this person
The Reluctant Camper

Kathleen McNamara

There are three reasons I don’t like to camp,
the bugs, the bears and the damp.
But the money’s been spent
so we’ll put up the tent.
Uh-oh! Dead batteries in the old Coleman lamp.

So, it’s off to the big campground store
where I’m sure that the cost will be more.
The batteries we find
and the cost is just fine.
We just want to see the bears that show up at the door.

The weekend has turned out just fine.
The fall weather has just been divine!
Hubby got his big wish
a whole three days to fish,
while I relax with a good book and wine!
