What Rhymes with “Recreational Vehicle”?

By:  Emily Rohrer

25th Apr, 17


A dubiously poetic tribute to the RV,

in honor of National Poetry Month,

and with sincere apologies to the late Joyce Kilmer,

author of the oft quoted poem, "Trees"

I think that I shall never see

A travel companion lovely as an RV.

An RV whose propane tanks run out

Between midnight and four, without a doubt;

An RV that serves as our home all day,

Yet rolls where needed for work or play;

An RV that may, after a driving goof,

Require new tires, or worse, a new roof;

Under whose awning guests have gathered,

Eating, laughing, all that mattered.

RVs are owned by fools like us,

But in the balance of life, they earn a plus.
