Living in an RV
I live in an RV
having sold my home to be free
of having to keep such a large space
for me and my two little mates
My friends all said to me
are you really going to live in an RV
it is so small and has no space
please do not make a decision in haste
By then it was way too late
as I had already sealed my fate
and into the RV did move
as both of my little dogs approved
Now several years have past
each one better than the last
because it is plain to see
that we like living in an RV
We no longer travel far and wide
enjoying the wonderful countryside
instead we are parked permanently
just me and the dogs in our RV.
Our home is Henly RV Park
a wonderful place even in the dark
with colored lights to shine the way
making it seem as bright as day.
With sixty-five RV’s living here
some come and go making it clear
that not all are here to stay
and those that remain live their way
The park is a beautiful site
as Daniel and Malinda keep everything right
grass is mowed the bathrooms are clean
and the picture it shows is a wonderful scene.
The residents that live here full time
have found the park so sublime
that they have made it their permanent home
living in their RV no longer to roam.
I am one of those lucky few
with a permanent place that I value
a lot of people I call friends
hoping their friendship never ends.
Daniel and Malinda are the hosts
whose goal in life is to tell the most jokes
to see which story gets the biggest laughs
none would pass a polygraph
Malinda rules the park with an iron thumb
her word is law and second to none
and if other guests are like me
we approach her on bended knee
Daniel is of a different kind
keeping the park so sublime
mowing the grass and blowing the leaves
stopping to chat to whoever he please.
Both will go out of their way to be kind
and help any camper who they may find
has a blocked pipe or water won’t flow
using their wisdom the camper to show
Then the parties they host at their RV
when Daniel barbecues its plain to see
that he has found his calling in life
helped along by his wonderful wife.
She mixes the drinks of all different kinds
and gives to the ladies who find them sublime
while the men stick to beer in an attempt
to stay sober enough to walk back to their tents
Then there is Gary so tall and straight
a helpful man and never late
with stories told in a quiet tone
don’t listen to them if you are alone.
One of the women of the group
is Delores who has been known to stoop
so low while mixing food in a bowl
her private parts mixed a casserole.
Let’s not forget the wonderful girls
that drive school bus a couple of pearls
both with humor to share around
a nicer couple can never be found.
There are others that come and go
at not every party do they show
but they add to the fun with stories so real
that their inner self they often reveal.
These wonderful friends make the days so bright
when they are around, they turn on the light
of friendship and fun and stories galore
and we roll on the ground screaming for more
I consider myself a lucky man
with friends like this that I had not planned
but fate has a way of rolling the dice
and sometimes with luck things turn out nice.
