Night Train to Chiang Mai

For Yuan Yuan, a truly good sport
and Andrew McLean, a legend.

Grade Nine's final day,

sailing the seas,

young Y-Squared became 

unnerved, ill at ease. 


Affectionate Andy - 

mischievous, too

began the legend that

his prank has now come to.


Wide-eyed and trusting,

and foolishly so,

albeit a quick exchange of looks

how could she have known?!


All plotting together,

we caught up real quick, 

convincing the poor girl

she’d lost all her things. 


“You left your bags in your room?”

Shrieking, “But didn’t you know, 

we’re shipping them to Bangkok!”

She cast her eyes down low. 

“I didn’t! I didn’t!

No, I didn’t know!”


With groans, “Oh Yuan Yuan!”

and sighs, “Oh dear!”

the thespian Niners

terrified our peer.


On the brink of tears,

it was time to close

before the humor ended

and the drama arose.



offered a schedule with a sigh.

Yuan whimpered sadly, 

“There’s nothing about Chiang Mai.” 


He barked, “Read it again!

Out loud, this time!” 

With a quiet, meek voice

she read down to the line

that stated, quite simply

‘Night Train to Chiang Mai’.
