Our travel bags retrieved, then tagged and packed,
Each year, this day, with only hours to go,
Filled, bulging piggy-banks have been attacked,
The countdown’s creeping to a dwindling low.
So many tasks to check before we go:
Alert the postman, stop the paper drop,
The Magical Express will need to know
our resort destination…but wait…STOP!
Important food provisions must be shopped,
As Grandma preps for special, in-flight treats:
Homemade chicken tenders, rest atop
the carrot cake and chilled nutritious eats.
But best of all, a prize for young and old,
Biscuits shaped like Mickey, good as gold!
