via Daily Prompt: Treat


Staying in a hotel suite
Has always been a special treat
A pool, mini bar and wide screen TV
The simple pleasures of life, for me.

I try to stay at the same hotel
It’s very clean and doesn’t smell
The beds are big, the carpet clean
There’s plenty of ice and a snack machine.

Each time I make my reservation
Every time, that I am on vacation
I know that it is going to be
The best of times, a blast for me.

Give me a budget hotel chain
One with a well known, household name
Like Super 8, or Motel 6,
Whether on the highway, or out in the sticks.

A one night’s stay, maybe two
In a room at the top, a room with a view
Who needs the best, it doesn’t matter
Who needs the Ritz, the Hilton or Plaza?

Breakfast is served from 6 to 10
Can’t wait to have those waffles, again.
Sausage and eggs, juice and coffee
I can’t wait, I’m feeling so hungry!

Checking out, I’ll soon have to go
I’ll pack the shampoo and small bars of soap
Maybe I’ll borrow, a small towel or two
Souvenir from my room, my room with a view.
