Gibraltar II

by Jem Croucher


If it wasn’t for the breeze from Spain
I’d be all a-swelter
for the sun in the Gibraltar Straits
is certainly a belter!
I’m sitting on a lounger
on deck ten above the prow
writing poems in the sunshine
beads of moisture on my brow
The Atlantic is before me
the Med not far behind
as I lie here and relax
and successfully unwind
