A teen view of the "Family Vacation"

O! Dread the sentence--
Can it really be
Twelve hours in the car
Trapped with my family?
We'll stop at stores and shops
despite my whiny pleas.
"Why can't I use my cell phone?
There are messages for me."
Cokes and greasy burghers
with my stomach don't agree.
Is it really twelve hours
to the hotel by the sea?
My disbelieving eyes
Now dance in ecstacy
There are other girls and GUYS
unpacking just like me.
The pool is really cool
And the sandy beach is free.
Forget the internet--
I'll be needing my bikini.
