View Full Version : A silly poem I wrote for INTERCOTEES

Hi all, I wrote this silly little poem, I posted it in JQ but since nobody said it stinks I figured I'd put a copy here for those of you who may not read JQ. Enjoy. :blush: I apologize moderators if this in the wrong place.

‘Twas the night ‘fore vacation and all through the house
all we could think of was that wonderful mouse.
The kids in their p.j.s and us in our robes
zipped up the suitcases, they’re ready to go.
Our DME tags were put into place
and each of us had a huge smile on our face.
We tucked the kids all snug in their beds
while visions of Nemo swam through their heads.
We went to our own room and turned out the light
but I knew there was no way I’d sleep through the night.
ADRs kept running through my stressed mind
Did I make them all? Did I get the best times?
The anticipation made me giddy and gay
only 10 more hours and we’d be on our way.
I closed my eyes and tried hard to sleep
looking forward to another INTERCOT meet.
The alarm clock rang loudly at 6 in the morning
and the T.V. news said there were blizzard warnings.
So with the fear that our flight would be delayed
we made our way to the airport and silently prayed.
We got boarding passes and went to check in
flight 100 now boarding, let the vacation begin.
We touched down in Orlando just before one
first day of vacation in the land of the sun.
We found DME and boarded the bus
Jeanne was our driver, what wonderful luck!
Port Orleans was such a beautiful sight
I could hardly believe we would be there 9 nights.
After checking in we boarded a boat
off to downtown Disney for a root beer float.
Cast members worked both day and night
to make sure that every dream took flight.
The next several days were filled with such magic,
I could see our last day would seem no less than tragic.
The middle of the trip brought a great surprise
from the castle suite we got to watch the sun rise.
But the greatest joy came near the end
when we got to meet some of our INTERCOT friends.
Some that I’ve talked to forever it seems
and other fresh faces who were new to the scene.
Bright beaming smiles and welcoming faces
wonderful people in the most magical of places.
We all watched the parade then had a quick snack
and made a vow that we all would come back.
The last night of our trip found us packing our bags
with souvenirs, trinkets, even new luggage tags.
Of course the trip and the story must come to an end
but we had incredible magic and met wonderful friends.
So to the INTERCOTEES I’ve met and those yet to come,
I only have one thing to say, You’re number one!
