I’m so happy for my kid
That I can’t hardly speak, uh,
That she’s traveling on her own
Way down in Costa Rica.
One thing that folks do down there
Is zipline through the jungle.
The speed must help avoid contracting
Maladies quite fungal.
She’s helping in a project that
To me seemed very sound;
She’ll spend the next two weeks down there
Tied up in Outward Bound.
The girls will go out to the beach
To help each baby turtle
Whose parents sucked at parenting
(Apart from being fertile).
I hope the bugs don’t suck her dry,
Or carry her away.
Maybe baths in bug spray will
Keep most of them at bay.
The weather there is quite intense;
It couldn’t be much hotter.
And there is such humidity,
It’s drier in the water.
She’ll return in two short weeks
To everyone that missed her;
Her laptop, phone, and game device,
(Plus parents, brother, and sister).
