Day 11

The Land of Volcanic Waters

Famous it is, for the many
Volcanic streams here
In the long shadow
Of Il Vulture
Bottling plants employed
Much of the population
Until five of them closed
Last year when Coca Cola
Bought one of them out
It’s just economics the locals say
Shrugging, but the sadness
In their eyes says otherwise
