My Poem: The Red City Tour
Poem by: Aysha Thomas
With 17 picturesque stops,
And sights to gaze at until your jaw drops.
Our journey began at the V&A,
Outside the Two Oceans Aquarium
where sea creatures play.
We were all prepared for a
day of adventure and fun,
As we took to our seats on the top deck beneath
the warm African sun.
Moving further along to stop number two,
We visited the Clock Tower which
serves as a symbol of history so true.
On the Foreshore we then stopped at the CTICC,
Which serves as bus stop number three.
The Information Center for Cape Town Tourism was
stop number four, Where we learnt of more wonders
which our City has in store.
We then came across St George’s Cathedral in
Victoria street, Known as the peoples cathedral
where rainbow people of all nations meet.
South African Museum is at stop number six,
Where we hopped off and took hundreds of pics.
We then moved along to the Mount Nelson Hotel for tea,
For a muffin and a cupcake or two or three.
The SA Jewish Museum is situated
at bus stop eight,
Where we marveled at stunning artifacts as we walked
through the gate.
Then at stop number nine we found the
Museum of District Six,
Where we learnt of cultural
struggles and racial cliques.
Opposite the Grand Parade we visited the Castle of Good Hope,
Which has the scenic background of Table Mountain’s slope.
The SA Gold Museum is situated in Strand Street,
Where exhibitions of glittering gold
knocked us off our feet.
At the Jewel Africa we started our Bo-Kaap walk,
And came across jewels and treasures by far
more valuable than chalk.
The highlight of the tour was the 13th stop, Where we
got a 360 degree view of the City from up on the table top.
For fun in the sun we hopped off at Camps Bay,
With gorgeous soft sandy
beaches on which bronze models lay.
As you hop off at the President Hotel,
You absorb breathtaking views and the fresh ocean smell
We took a long stroll along Sea Point beach,
Where on the promenade we bought an
ice-cream for us each.
Now back to the ticket office at bus stop number
one, Which is where our journey initially begun.
Then as the sun slowly began to set,
We had memories of a day we surely
will never forget.
