When in Rome

When in Rome do as the Romans do
means that you must adapt
to customs that feel strange to you.
To others they are apt.

As a guest you show restraint,
observe what your hosts do.
And even if some things seem quaint,
you try to use them, too.

So gradually you may dare
to present your old ways
which they may willingly then share.
Perhaps one of them stays.

Aus meinem Buch:

Wonderful pictures found connections to my fantasy. All kinds of contemporary themes popped up, so I made partly funny, partly serious rhymes about society, psychology, nature – and climate, of course. The poems are short so that it is no trouble to read them again, advisably one at a time, to more fully enjoy it.
