sit in comfy chairs

camper van parked

sitting in the sun

waiting for the entertainment

to arrive

we learned

years ago


sitting on the floor in a cheap tent

drinking unbranded vodka coke

as the rain set in

watching with sheer delight

as monsieur arrived in a big motor

carrying une grande tente

madame & les enfants

sat in the car

as the rain pelted down

him bashing in tent pegs

as we tittered quietly

amused at anothers’ discomfort

this person far richer than us

& now

another camping car is here

satellite dish broken

by the low hanging trees

as he shouts instructions

to his long suffering loved one

we sit in comfy chairs

sipping kirs’

but yes

the delight

is still there
