The Camping Trip.

My sister has gone camping In the elements outside. She packed her paraphernalia, And her girlfriend is her guide.

She packed a tent that's rainproof, A compass, just in case, A Coleman lamp for spooky tales, Along with a scary face.

She packed a down-filled sleeping bag, A pillow, plump, to match. There's food to last for three full days. There's popcorn by the batch.

With woolen socks and rubber boots, She makes it seem so hard. I think she may have overpacked--She's camping in our yard.
