Day 1,003: The Ballad of May West – Non-Limerick Lyrics. Verse 12

This is the twelfth verse of The Ballad of May West.

Long past the age when most retire
She sang the Doors’ tune, Light My Fire
Her voice still good but not quite in its prime.
Though she’s now gone as consolation
We still have her invitation
So we’ll go up and see her, sometime.

Day 1,004: Chilean Flamingo. Torres del Paine National Park.

Laetitia led a tour that began with several days in Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. Her daily limericks featured the wildlife and geology of the park. On this day’s hike they saw Chilean flamingos.

Pink grace on stilt legs as it preens
The Flamingo’s hue’s not in its genes
It’s its diatom diet
That does underlie it
By providing beta-carotenes.
