The Lyrics

The Dardanelles ain’t huge
(Not very wide).
It cuts right between two. . .
It’s dividin’
Two spots, dividin’.

On one side in a land
Where Euros are found.
On the other, more sand
And inhabitants with different sounds.

“The Dardanelles” is new
“Hellespont” clime
One time.

Cuts right through
The place you
Go to view
Places two, where the chows
Differ and where
There’s been rivalries,
But for right now,
It’s peaceful.

The Dardanelles, the new
Name for some time.

This could be the most impressive thing that a poet has done with the Dardanelles since Lord Byron swam across in 1810.
