Much can happen in one day
Surprises lurk along the way
My thoughts this morning turn to Spain
Land of drama once again.
Forget the galleons filled with gold
The Inquisition’s fires grown cold
The Civil war and Garcia Lorca
Paella, Flamenco, Gaudi’s quarter.
The spotlight falls on distant Chile
Who’s made Spain’s national team look silly
And scandal rocks the royal throne
As Franco’s successor makes it known
That Abdication is the key
To re-creating harmony
Felipe VI is one cool dude
But will he brighten Spain’s black mood?
