Where’s the elegance of travel gone?
Don’t see that much anymore
We’re stacked up just like melons now
From the ceiling to the floor
Where’s that fearless pioneer
That lone traveller of old?
Is there still place for him in this new world
Where all we seek is gold?
I came across him countless times
During the course of my young travels
Stepping out beyond the pale
Life’s secrets to unravel
Where one brave man stepped out all alone
He’s followed now by sheep
Who bought their tickets some place online
For ‘adventure’…. on the cheap
