Tales from the Tribe

Poetry On Display

Those who read our emails know this fact to be true
Poetry is a talent we like to flex within this Crew
We’re not so hot at math but with words we kind of slay
And this Fall we came to learn that the gab is NOT one way

We started receiving emails from a Camper named Sherry
Who spews genius via BlackBerry
With her poetry and prose, this Camper’s a natural trip
Without further ado, enjoy this exhibit of many a Sherry Lemonick clip…

Title: STATE OF OUR UNION
Muse: 2016 Presidential Election leading into Nov 2016 camp

I’m going to camp
How psyched am I
After greetings from Tammi
Who knows what new things I’ll try?!

After a stressful election season
Emotions going wild
I want to go back to my happy place
And pretend I’m a child

See, that’s what’s important
With fellow Campers galore
Grab the yoga mat and some buddies
Your “Inner Critic’s” critic will soar

So, let’s finish this election
And focus on the fun
When the gates to camp open
I’ll be in line #1!!!

Note from the Crew: Sherry and her sister Marcy (a first-time Camper this past November) were, in fact, the first in line!

Title: T’WAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CAMP
Muse: Those pre-camp butterflies

T’was the night before camp, I just cannot wait
Already planning my 2017 date
My bags are all packed and ready to go
Boarding pass printed, let’s get on with the show!

Hey, ladeez: get ready, I’m getting the knack
I may even do ropes ‘cuz you all have my back
See you on Thursday when the gates open at 2
I have already marked off the Circles I’ll do

I will shoot bows& arrows and inhale Tammi’s sage
This newfound adventure is like the coming of age
To all: have safe travels, I’ll see you very soon
Let’s roast our marshmallows
Under the Campowerment moon

Title: ALL I WANT FOR EVERYTHING IS CAMP
Muse: The holidays (we think!)

Some people wait for Santa to arrive with new shiny toys
Others gather around the menorah, eat latkes, and wait for the check from Nana for Chanukah
While still others get excited when they are going to their first prom or on a new date
Well, guess what, ladeeeezzzzz?
All I give a sh*t about is going to CAMP!!!!!!!!!!
