Another dum di dum rhyme – European travel

 

austrian train

Kevin’s been off on his travels again
Europe explored by boat or fast train
Broadens the mind and eases the strain
Until you come back to the heat and the rain
Belfast is sultry which makes people mean
Does your mind wander to Basel and Wien?
Bratwürst, Kartoffeln and frothy, tall Steins
Onion shaped domes and acres of vines
The good life enjoyed by Germans and French
No longer embattled in killing field trench
But Europe united as partners in wealth
Better for all who value their health
Austrian waltzes to dance in your dream
Coffee and cakes so loaded with cream
That you fall off your chair—this reverie’s done
Let’s dance in the street to beckon the sun
