Poetry by Jeff Green


Ups and Downs in Cairo

I’m off to the airport tomorrow
With mixtures of pleasure and sorrow
This land is amazing
When sunset is blazing
On scenes that you’d all want to borrow

But after the upside the down
My smiles were turned into a frown
When something I ate
Caused me to forget
The sights of this wonderful town!
