Russia Fantasy Travel Inspires Coleridge Kublai Cheap Trick

While we miss the greenYgrey every day, it feels like a special occasion when we receive its latest news from its new rambles, which are at the moment continuing across Russia.

Hi, it’s Jack Wolfpac, satirical comedy travel writing correspondent at the Greenygrey. The above heading was a James Bond movie, and there’s a Cheap Trick reference in the latest episode of the greenYgrey’s all new thrilling fantasy travel by Google Maps literary epic comedy parody of the X Files.

Cheap Trick’s Live at the Budokan was recorded in Japan, and was a major success for them, full of great anthemic pop rock songs.

Snail Mail

I thought gYg had made a lot of progress when I read its post, but when I looked at the Google map I drew the conclusion that it had travelled too close to the road, slowing it down to a snail‘s pace.

Maybe it had shapeshifted into a snail. I can neither confirm or contradict that theory. I know as much as you do. gYg doesn’t mention any shapeshifting, but maybe it didn’t think it was relevant.

Anyway, here is episode 7: 6 stanzas of 5-line limericks:

XaW Files Chapter 1 Episode 7

It was getting late
I thought I’d wait
to the end of dusk
then heard Khabarovsk
show me the M58.

I crossed the River Amur
sensing underneath blue blur
the heart of a leopard or tiger
with no need for a decider
or break and rip cerulean fur.

Priamurskaya a few hours west
Kolyuchinskaya several days past
Koly was pre-Amur
Amur was pre-Priamur
Reaching skaya was sign for a rest.

Nikolaevka, Dezhnevka, Volochaevka
never did veer
until I reached Olgokhta
and tucked into a starter
main course, dessert and beer.

I made the leftovers into a sandwich
eaten on the far side of Smidovich
Aur led to Budukan
reminding me of a Cheap Trick
live album which made them rich.

Would my live touring words
ever make such inroads
I wandered loud on a highway
wondering Coleridge’s Xanadu Kublai
or west-travelling Genghis and hordes.
