213. Journey home…

I couldn’t decide what to get you.
Sachertorte or Wiener Schnitzel were
Unlikely to survive the journey.

Lederhosen was a possibility
But I don’t know your size
I couldn’t decide what to get you.

Salzburg had a nice line in pastries
Or possibly some chocolate Mozart balls:
Unlikely to survive the journey.

In the end, I emptied out my suitcase
And decided on a present for myself as
I couldn’t decide what to get you.

Into my case I’ve put the entire
German transport system, the French being
Unlikely to survive the journey.

Trams long and light, fast and frequent, cheap and convenient,
And bicycles everywhere with baskets and baby-seats, bells and child carriers
I couldn’t decide what to get you, but this
Is guaranteed to survive the journey.
