gave us the first line in blue


A man who was proud of his clout
Said 'My rules nobody must flout!'
But I laid him low
When I trod on his toe!
I knew that he suffered from gout!


Sadly, I never visited the wonderful isles of Greece,
Which, in my mind, are heavenly, filled with blue-and-white and peace.
I've seen them represented on many a print and card,
And imagining I've been there has not been very hard.
This is an Australian version of the Grecian situation;
Our local swimming pool and its plebeian pumping-station.
It's genuinely blue and white, though classical it's not,
But at least the sky is cloudless and the weather's really hot.
We cannot all have what we want; I'll never go to Greece,
But at least this view is heavenly, filled with blue-and-white and peace!

Sometimes the dreams are more fulfilling than the reality.
