Day three,
A day of history,
Nearly 2000 years,
Since the flattening,
Of a city by the sea,
By the mountain of the Gods,
Spewing ash as smoke.
Pompeii is a dust trap,
But is not boring in any way,
Vesuvius is no better,
But at least it keeps,
The horizon company.
I can’t think,
Of a better thing,
To do today,
Than see the old sights,
And climb the earth’s peaks
To learn something new,
And see something old,
There’s nothing better,
I think you’ll agree.
