Circling Round the Arctic 2011

Circling Round The Arctic


Too many hours in the Swedish sun:

A raisin bun.  Not funny!

Freckled, mole-y, melanom-y


Pigment’s foe.

Tan and lovely for a summer;

White in winter.

That’s the ‘bummer’!

Living near an arctic circle

Makes a work of keeping tan.


Says “Eat more C”!

“Get more D3”!

The country

Is a Nordic one:

Long summer days close to the sun;

A combination

Made in space

That destines wrinkled legs to face.

With ultra-violet by osmosis,

Winter osteoporosis,

Sweden is anomalous,


For no one wants to leave it.
