From my camping experience I had this summer. Enjoy!

Camping Blues

The pitching of tents,
the frustration there after.
When it crumbles and falls,
there are groans and then laughter.
The leaky air matress
caves and then sinks.
The early morning stretches
to get out those back kinks.
The batteries always die
when you really need the light.
Just when you have to pee
in the middle of the night,
or something brushes up against
the tent, along your side.
Not knowing what "it" truly was,
but swearing you "almost" died.
Through all the tiny mosquito bites,
and rainy days that come in two's,
and through all the scary, sleepless nights...
Now those are camping blues!

  I see that you had a great time camping I guess lol. But seriosly I live up in the woods for a living so it really ain't that bad for me actually but it seams that you got used to it after awhile.
