The ‘phone rings Sunday afternoon
I’m all alone – who can it be?
A friend has visitors quite soon
By any chance would I be free -
To show them Brussels fabled sights
And tread the cobbled streets by day
So they can sample sweet delights
And learn some history on the way?
Anecdotes won’t come amiss
Our Baroque centre does us proud
Being a guide is all of this
Live entertaining in a crowd.
On rainy days cafés are fun
Museums of Music, Lace and Art
But it’s stupendous in the sun
If you can find a place to park!
The city’s small; its role immense
NATO HQ and E.U.
Business activity - intense
But discerning tourists love it too!
