The Seedy Motel

 

By Elton Camp

 

We were driving on an unfamiliar route

For a stopping place we began to scout

However, the search didn’t go very well

For many miles there wasn’t a nice motel

 

Since it was getting dark and we were tired

Our standards lowered as to what’s required

Finally we spotted a place over to the right

A place to stay, although surely no delight

 

The lawn hadn’t been mowed of late

The exterior badly needed an update

“Vacancy” the neon sign read

So to shower and then to bed

 

But the desk clerk we warily eyed

Far too much make-up she’d applied

“How can I help ya, Chum?

As she whacked on her gum

 

“We need to stay just one night.”

“We rent by the hour, but all right.

One thing I want to make plain:

About bedbugs don’t complain.”

 

“We won’t be staying,” my wife said

In agreement, I nodded my head

If we had to drive on too far

We’d prefer to sleep in the car
