November 18: We Built This Citrus

Traveling Lemon at ORD
Five years ago we bought a lemon tree
And put it in a smallish square of dirt
Never suspecting that the BBC
Its usefulness with silly would subvert,

Whose groundwork was laid out on our vacations,
With Smotherses and Freberg ever playing,
Developing my aural inclinations
For humor I had small hope of repaying.

But thanks to fandom, I found Cabin Pressure
I shared it with my folks to pay them back
For years of laughs, in hopes it would feel fresher
In Olney as in Qikiqtarjuaq.

So when my parents flew home yesterday,
They took a lemon, soon to be in play.
