Twenty Item bucket List

by Lance S. Loria

T ravel to Bali would be grand, working my toes into the sand.
W andering around the Great Wall, so imposing long, wide and tall.
E ating delish exotic food, producing a contented mood.
N ever carrying a cell phone, enjoying life sometimes alone.
T ee time scheduled for every day, without obligation to pay.
Y achting across the seven seas, having a crew would be the key.

I taly's Isle of Capri, nicely au natural and free.
T aking a hot air balloon flight, fighting back fright with all my might.
E xamining the Pyramid, my focus would be riveted.
M eeting the Pope at Vatican, never has been an African.

B eating some type of world record, break it fast so not to get bored.
U nderwater scuba diving, treasure adventure conniving.
C ounting all of the stars one night, keeping track of each one in sight.
K icking a twenty yard field goal, in the twenty twenty rose bowl.
E arn a trip with Olympic team, tiddlywink champion is my dream.
T raveling into outer space, leaving behind the human race.

L ottery winner would be nice, along with financial advice.
I nvesting in a jackpot stock, would make my financial talk rock.
S caling a Mount Everest peak, praying I can if not too meek.
T urning the pages of my list, finding not one item was missed.
