Any Progress?

MONTE BEACH
“A former jewel!”

There was much sadness during our recent trip to Cyprus. One of our favourite tavernas at Monte Beach, Pissouri, closed because of the arrival of a huge hotel complex!

Dear Monte Beach.. we loved your tasty food

Your hospitality: it was first class

Sea bream with salad brightened up our mood

‘Now view with sadness: “All good things must pass!”

“Columbia Almighty”… kill, destroy

An empty shell.. graffiti: “writ’ in blood”!

Great heartbreak for us: ‘takes away all joy

‘Restore your former glory if we could!

So bleak this scene, we turn away to go

A seagull wails, a magpie chatters past

With litter strewn, our sunshine turns to snow

An eye-sore now, and gone its former cast

We stroll along the ‘Med with moistened eye

Real progress?.. not a chance, I heave a sigh!     R.I.P.  x x x x
