A Trip to Paris

 

By Elton Camp

 

On the shuttle bus from de Gaulle airport

Is the first thing candor requires to report

 

Body odor was no doubt that horrible smell

In the city we could often detect urine as well

 

Seeing the French with their dogs was a delight

But their manure littering the sidewalks is a sight

 

But when nature calls for the humans it’s a mess

They clean their toilets once in a while, I guess

 

Another strange thing about toilets that I must say

If you want to use them, then be prepared to pay

 

And the car drivers are just as reckless as can be

Besides that, many obnoxious scooters you see

 

Scooters often go the wrong way down the street

And even on sidewalks you are likely them to meet

 

But the main thing that really makes me quite mad

Some don’t speak English and others only very bad
