The Trip

The Trip
The trip was planned in secret, as the kids were not to know,
For the Morgan’s nosey parkers are always on the go,
One of them’s an expert at listening; to parents making plans
He just did not contemplate this trip to far off lands,
So, tickets they were ordered, and rooms booked on the sly,
And Mum and Dad they did not talk, in hearing of their spy,
For when the day it came, to pack the car and go,
Our two intrepid travellers were still not in the know,
They went and picked up grandad and were very mystified,
When instead of going for a walk, got in’t car, and sat inside
We sped along the motorway, the questions they came fast,
But not a clue as to where we were, or how long the trip would last,
A service station came in view, we decamped and had a brew,
But Alfie had of course to go, and inspect the nearest loo!
The drive lasted hours, poor dad was hot and tired,
The kids they were very mystified, to get homes taking hours,
We drew into a motel, and said we’ll stay the night,
And we were just thankful that no leaflets were in sight,
Next morning on the TV, they found that London was not far.
But going there, we were not, as they go into the car,
Their shock it was compounded, when through the gets they sped,
To magic Harry Potter Land and its massive film lot spread.
The looks on their faces wreathed in smiles and wonderment,
Shows just how our secret trip, to them; was heaven-sent.
