Travelling on in a rusted old car
The trio longed for a rest
Adventure ahead somewhere to go
Was a dream they wished they could test.
Lily was tired it shown on her face
She wasn't as young as she was
Demetrius still looked at her in awe
To him she was styled with grace.
Where should they head for?
The journey was long
Stops became longer each time
The old rugged car on its last legs
Twenty years into its prime.
Money was tight wallets were empty
Demetrius knew he had no chance
Would he have to revert to old ways?
Needs must in this circumstance.
Stopping for gas and water
Was a tedious task
While lily was sipping on gin
From her old silver flask.
Action had to be taken
For life was not very good
Sitting at many camp fires
Hungry without any food.
