#62

Our parents took us on mystery tours
Wrapped hankies round our eyes in the car
To preserve our cynical sense of wonder
Later balancing this out by not lying
Too convincingly about Father Christmas
We trawl the dinosaur exhibit at the
Natural History Museum
Before a rare junk food lunch
And tickets in our hands to see
Jurassic Park on the big screen
I make a note to plan activities like this
under every possible theme.
