On Seeing a Picture of Mt. Everest

On Seeing a Picture of Mt. Everest

 

By Elton Camp



Some things are better from a distance admired

I needn’t be “close and personal” to be inspired

I have no need to make any personal inspection

So as to develop an appropriate degree of affection



Mountain climbing would surely be last on my list

Of adventures and experiences not to be missed

Perhaps going up might not actually be too bad

But it’s the possible rapid descent that’d be sad



And whether the weather should snowy or fair,

Way up there, not very much oxygen in the air

At any rate, I don’t plan ever to put it to the test

And somebody else is welcome to climb Everest
