Venice (touch n go)~by Jeremy J Croucher


8 of 12 in ‘The Adriatic Affair’ series from Jemverse

 

Venice (touch n go)

The fog came down, it was quite thick
and we weren’t moving far
and dropping anchor out at sea
was unspectacular
Then the captain on the tannoy said
Venice was closed today
which as you might imagine
was met with some dismay
But then out there to starboard
a pale sun made a show
and as the pea soup dissipated
the ship prepared to go
A loud ‘hoorah’ erupted
when the captain later on
said that Venice had re-opened
and it wouldn’t be that long
before the pilot came and joined us
and we’d be underway
into Venetian waters
on this lovely holiday
