Bar Street, Pafos, 'heart is bleeding
Lots more tourists they are needing
Gosh, it is 'abandoned place
Atmosphere, no longer ace!
No tavernas, empty spaces
Where are all the happy faces?
Derelict, a hopeless feel
'Wonder.. Will it ever heal?
Twenty-Twelve, a "Happy meeting"
Wanderers take all the seating (walkers)
Greek the music, drink and dance
Demokritos, our lives enhance
Greek the dancing, Rufus waving
Lots of memories he's saving
Man, with glasses on his head
He, for entertainment bred!
Twenty-Twenty-Two, it's ghostly
Pussy cats we're seeing mostly
Shop fronts gone, just gaping holes
Debris and abandoned poles!
Roundabout, see mainly litter
Feelings are, for once, quite bitter
One relief, not many cars
Look at all the empty bars!
Turning left, the church approaching
Mr. Timmins here "encroaching"
Organist plays sad lament
Warmest feeling, his "intent"
Leaving Bar Street, tears are falling
Sorry state is so appalling
'Glad to see the bluest sea
From all gloom we're soon set free! 23/01/2022 xxxx
