Default Cruise Gripe Humor

After reading all of the gripes, I wrote the following.

Ode to Cruse Gripes

Cruising should be fun,
Cruising should be great.
Why do all these lousy
people do stuff that I hate.

I canít stand the smokers,
and the noisy children too.
I wish my tablemates
to dinner would wear shoes.

People saving show seats
causes me to whine.
Donít forget the elderly
cutting in the buffet line.

Then there are the teenagers
acting like so many fools.
At least they arenít saving
beach chairs by the pools.

The baby screaming during dinner
has me considering a crime.
As are the cheap cruisers
who wonít even tip a dime.

Even the wonderful cruise staff
is getting on my nerves.
Why canít my towels be towels
and not animals and birds?

Iíve even got a travel agent
whose attitude I hate.
He wonít give me the $699 cruise
at the advertised $399 rate.

All this aggravation
is giving me the blues.
I need a nice vacation
Perhaps Iíll take a cruiseÖ
