Beloved but Impossible Belgium!

To write a poem every day
Is not an easy game to play
But life in my adopted city
Often means I'm sitting pretty.

Three governments are a big deal
For 11 million? Let's get real!
Bi-lingual red tape is such fun
Impossible to get things done...

Traffic chaos, lack of parking
Spasmodic airport checks are starting!*
Hail, snow and sun on just one day
And often - fifty shades of grey!

Soldiers in the heart of town
Shops whose sales come tumbling down
Riots against high haulage tolls
Belgium – land of confused souls!
