365 Poems in 365 Days: Tour Guide

Tourist sites are machines
For extracting money from visitors
As painlessly and pleasantly as possible
You can try and rein it in
Keep things on a budget or
So on, and still find it enjoyable

Number 226 is inspired by my Australian cousins who found that tourist things are expensive. They thought Paris more of a rip-off than London, although that's partly because of the weird things like charging more for sitting outside rather than standing at the bar.
