Not mellow yellow: British tourist Kwame Ofori 'enjoys' the strange sights and smells of a sulphuric lake. 'Who wants to sit around a pool,' he said


Surely there was some mistake!
When they advertised The Yellow Lake,
He pictured one bedecked with flowers,
Maybe sweet mimosa bowers.
He imagined exotic hills
Decked with something like daffodils!
He pictured yellow birds on high
Under the bright blue African sky.
He imagined sweetness, silly fellow,
When the 'ad' said 'Come to Yellow'.
But his trip to Ethiopia 
Was designed by someone with myopia!
Sulphur is causing this bright hue,
And you know what sulphur fumes can do!
Rotten eggs smell of the stuff!
There! I think I've said enough!
When you get your travel-brochure
Make sure that everything is kosher .
His travel agent will get the sack.
AND he'll ask for his money back!
Gerald Gee


Every colour on earth is there,
Suspended in the middle air!
And every sound on earth is there
Caught in a second rich and rare!
Can't you hear them, Can't you see?
How rich a monochrome can be!
