In Pretty Prague Poem by Roger Hudson

In Pretty Prague



Over the cobbles they scuttle
Through narrow winding lanes
In fairytale city
These multi-tongued tourist beetles
Scavenging for the droppings
Of history
Of culture
Capturing them
For this brief holiday at least
In camera, notebook, brainpan
Scurrying to keep up
With umbrella-signalling tour guide
This way that way
What did he say?
Mustn't miss a minute
Through castle church museum gallery
Up steep steps stairs hills
Ears grappling with strange names insignificant events
Easily forgotten once home
With photos albumed
Mementoes scrapbooked
Normality obliterating casual memories
Hard work of holiday over for another year
