From a visit to Canada in the summer of 78
In Kelowna, British Columbia,
my girlfriend and I
were made aware of the parade
on "Scandinavian Day."
Soon the carts came a'rollin.
On board you could watch
blond maidens and gents
in steel helmets
all adorned with
them big horns
that Wagner invented
for his operas.
I could barely keep
from laughing out loud
and why, indeed, didn't I?
Whenever we're abroad
those delirious, bloodthirsty barbarians
keep following us around,
though we're at least
nine hundred years apart.
This morning it struck me.
Romanians participating in similar events...
...do they wear Dracula masks and capes?
