This week we have been exploring Santorini. As it is right at the end of the season we have managed to avoid the crowds by and large. This is a beautiful island made more so by the whitewashed buildings and churches with blue roofs.
I tried to write a poem to express this beauty but after several disappointing attempts I just wrote a daft rhyme. (P.S. before anyone points it out, I know a lot of the references are Italian and Santorini is in Greece. But I struggled to find Greek references that rhymed with Santorini. Makes the poem even sillier!!)
I’m no meanie
Certainly no Mussolini
Enjoy a bit of Puccini
While sipping a dry Martini
With my wife in her bikini
I used to love the Sweeney
I used to own a beanie
Er indoors say mine is teenie
Royal wedding a bit of Eugenie
Man City managers Mancini and Pellegrini
Italian hot spots Tuscany and Rimini
Aladdin and his little genie
I know this rhyme is a little silly
But god I love a bit of Santorini.
