A Tale of Two Maps

I bought an excellent cycling map of Holland

And used it to cycle all the way south from Amsterdam.

When I got to Sankt Goar in Germany

I met a German, cycling north to Holland,

With an excellent map of Germany.

We swapped maps

And swapped addresses

In Cambridge and Lübeck,

So that when we get home

We can send the maps

To their proper homes.
