Back Home!

On Bournemouth beach the girls are clothed,
In Lisbon almost bare;
Some differences are to be loathed,
When I am here not there.
But overall I’m glad I’m back,
With tea and toast and jam,
The inner me gets out of whack
When here’s not where I am!

Author notes

It’s a privilege, I guess, to be paid to see other places, and I do enjoy many parts of the travelling, but coming home is always something special
