On Travel Sickness by Jez Farmer

The night before brings those feelings of dread
Nightmares started before I go to bed
In queasy visions involving the car
They swirl in dizzy thoughts around my head
No matter how near, no matter how far
I’d rather stay put, right here, where we are
Or can’t we simply go by bus or train
Everyone knows I feel sick in a car
With windows wide open in sun and rain
My eyes closed tight so I don’t go insane
And motion sends my body in a seiche
As I swear I’ll never do this again
In a car the feeling sick I don’t like
Why the hell can’t I go by motorbike
