August 20th: The Kennywood Trip Haikus

Friday, August 21, 2009 3:53 PM

Muggy and busy
Yet waits for rides were quite short
Good time had by all

Phantom's Revenge: Yay!
Second hill trick track is weird
Two-train ops all day

Thunderbolt? Hurray!
Ava finally can ride
She: what's the big deal?

Still too scary, no can do
Maybe next summer

Paddleboats are quaint
Please don't run over the ducks
I paid to work out?

Pitt. Plunge too busy,
Stand over here a minute
That'll cool you off!

Turnpike Cars are closed
Already demolishing
For next year's big thing

Bad food at K'wood?
Forget about it! Extra
gravy on roast beef

I love a parade
Bonus: Mr. McFeely!
Handing out head shots

Storms to end the day
Time for the long drive back home
Bye to an old friend

Thank you! That's low praise, indeed. ;)

Just be glad I didn't try out my Kings Island sonnets this year....

This is nothing. Wait until Mamoosh presents his Magic Mountain TR in full iambic pentamer.... ;)
