Thousands of passengers board the craft
suitcases checked in, rooms and tables assigned,
ten days and eight ports, Greece, Egypt, Turkey.
Strangers mingle during scheduled activities;
dancing, swimming, bingo and dining.
Food and deserts of every kind
available twenty four hours a day.
Tours are designed to take guests safely through foreign
territory. Don’t mind the man in the black beret
with the machine gun. He is there to protect tourists
from any local who resents their
presence but needs their vacation dollars
to pay for an impoverished lifestyle.
