Andes Tourist Attraction

The nameless old Indian died,

the one who begged

daily by the fountain;

He fell over in

the Plaza during Siesta,

so inconsiderate,

interrupting the

morgue attendant’s

enjoyment of the

broadcast soccer game;

Matters could have been worse,

retrieving a body

from the fountain itself

would have attracted

unfavourable comment

in the local press and broadcast media,

perhaps dissuading tourists

from enjoying the many Civic

amenities and places of interest

such as the fountain,

where begging is not permitted.
