Poem for Tourists

Hark All Tourists

Hark all tourists to lay of land!

Listen close, do as I command.

Blend into the culture, local,

Do not be out of town yokel.

Relax, ignore snags in program.

Sit back and smile, say ‘no problem’.

Be courteous to other mates.

Put yourself in hands of the fates.

Pack light, leaving home all those shoes.

Take heed, bring only things you’ll use.

Hark all tourist to what I say

And you’ll have a grand holiday!

June Nash


Took a trip to Stratford Ontario for the Shakespeare Festival.  I stayed at a very nice B&B.  In the bathroom the 10 commandments for tourists was posted. Reading this list inspired me to write the above poem.
