A BURNING COUNTRY

David Subacchi

Greece this year, a country that is burning
A proud people with resentment burning
 
Bankers fighting in claustrophobic rooms
Politicians old agreements burning
 
Ruins of ancient civilisation
Orthodox churches with candles burning
 
A bouzouki player leads the dancing
Lovers together their passions burning
 
And I David, here for relaxation
Drink red wine and smell the coffee burning.
