ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
The city life has strangled you, in every single way,
You pack the car, the wife and kids and make your getaway.
You fight the traffic and the heat, you long for the serene.
You need a place to hide away, a different kind of scene,
The fence has seen its better days, the roof is leaking too,
Mosquitos fill the air at night, to get a taste of you,
The rooms are small and crowded, you think it holds such peace,
A place where you can get some rest, your troubles to release,
A cabin in the woods is great, a tent will also do,
Get further from the noise of life and touch the morning dew,
A sleeping bag under the stars will fill the space within,
But I prefer my bed at home or at nice clean inn.
