Ode to Wellington

Well we discovered upon checking in, that to leave transit at Sydney airport was $90 each, so we ended up spending nine hours wandering around the airport. Naturally, boredom struck and Kylie heard the song “my favourite things” and figured it would suit an ode to Wellington, about the things he would miss…

The Yellow fever and the rain at the phoenix
bright yellow frujus and my favourite caffeine fix
A bottle of L&P served over ice
These are things that make Wellington nice.
Sushi at midlands and crisp hoppy ales
Weta and Te Papa and fishing in gales
Sunny days spent at Kaffee eis

These are the things that make Wellington nice
