Suwon City

Gaizka Mendieta,
Outside his home in Spain,
Was writing a long letter
To his sweetheart, Elaine.

At the time, Shay Given,
In Spain on holidays,
In a hired car was driven
By Claude, a friend of Shay’s.

Now Claude and Shay were driving
Around and round and round,
No nearer to arriving,
Destination still unfound.

They stopped chez Mendieta,
The window open wide,
And hailed the blond goal-getter,
Sitting there outside.

Mendieta listened,
Looked long and hard at Shay,
Then with a smile that glistened,
He sent him the wrong way.
