Lady Edinburgh

Edinburgh itself is not mad
She is patient.
She takes everyone that wants to see her,
Bids them in
Here’s the parlour, the lounge is over there
Make yourself comfortable.
And they do.

Tourists never fail to ring her bell
Showing up on her doorstep,
Tired, dirty
Expecting glory of past times now
All wrapped up in tartan, aran wool
and pipes.

And Edinburgh, trying to be a lady,
Does all that.
