(With apologies to Edgar Allen Poe)
On my next cruise, will I pay list price? Nevermore!
Will I revisit inns where not treated nice? Nevermore!
Will I bask too long under summer rays? Nevermore!
Will I load six helpings on my buffet trays? Nevermore!
Will I drive all night on my next car journey? Nevermore!
Then to be hauled off on a hospital gurney? Nevermore!
Will I tarry past midnight at hotel bars? Nevermore!
And awake next morning seeing stars? Nevermore!
Will I eat iffy food from a roadside stand? Nevermore!
Will I bet too much on my Vegas hand? Nevermore!

Will ignoring all the above be my encore?
You’re doggone right it will ... Evermore!
