THE HOSTAGE HOST
When people come to visit you
they simply must go everywhere!
Obligatory tourist trek
commencing here to there.
T’is not enough your face,
your restful,quiet, living space...
That you’ve endowed with all your heart
laid in with treasures to impart.
NO! They would jump back in your car
and have you drive them some place far...
it doesn’t matter much
grind the gear...pound the clutch!
There’s nothing you can do my friend
Yet, here’s a note of grace...
God gives and takes away ,in time,
all people from your place.
