Tourist Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 0

To Italy a random tour

I took to crown my education,

Returning relatively poor

In purse yet rich in conversation.

Old Rome put up a jolly show,

But I am not a classic purist,

Preferring to Mike Angelo

The slim stems of a lady tourist.

Venice, they say, was built on piles;

I used to muse, how did they do it?

I tramped the narrow streets for miles,

Religiously I gondoled through it.

But though to shrines I bowed my head,

My stomach's an aesthetic sinner,

For in St. Mark's I yawned and said:

"I hope we'll have lasagne for dinner."

Florence, I'll say, was mighty swell,

With heaps of statues stark and lusty;

I liked the Pitti Palace well,

The Offusi I found to fusty.

But though I "did" the best of it,

My taste, I fear, is low and nasty,

For in its bars I'd rather sit

Imbibing cups of sparkling Asti.

And so we go, a tourist host,

And pass art treasures little heeding,

While memories that haunt us most

Are those of rich and copious feeding.

In sooth I see no need to roam,

Since all I want this side of Hades,

I'll comfortably find at home -

Just eating, drinking and the Ladies.
