Death Valley 6

I’m in the hotel, end of train journey.

I switch on the TV: News, and confusion.

Top story: A venerable travel company’s gone bust,

it’s been in trouble for a while,

thousands of customers stranded abroad,

fears realized (maybe they got a discount for their gamble?) …

Just one of many bad, sad and mad

gloomy news stories,

on this melancholy gray day.

But relief is at hand, “friend”, take a breath, yes, take a break,

it’s TV commercial time.

“Feeling down? Feeling blue?

Then why not book next year’s vacation now!

We’ve got some great destinations.

Book now! Beat the rush!

We’re the travel company you can trust!”

Alas, capitalism never stops.

(To be continued…)
