Hotel Turangawaewae

A towel in the bath means
a towel on the rail:

a candle in the window,
a sign on the door:

Do Not Disturb means
I've made my bed:

I'm neat, I'm discreet,
I'm staying on, but

you can have my suite:
look, I am going for a stroll—

there are so many stars,
I shall choose one for myself—

and when I return the room
will be just as I left it.
