Poem 28 of 230:  ADELAIDE TO SYDNEY

Coaching Adelaide to Sydney
    Was always the method for me -
Due to a greatly cheaper fee;
    But, as it is
Such a time in a seat to be,
    To fly seems bliss.

Sure, by coach, there’s a lot to see,
    And sometimes folks did chat with me;
But on those trips, between study,
    I’d think like this:
Is it truly worth the saved fee..?..
    The plane seems bliss.
