A small poem for Vlissigen

Zo de wind waait, waait z'n jasje

As the wind blows, so does his jacket

(i.e. He will jump on any bandwagon)

Dutch Proverb

To light a cigarette with a candle
Kills a sailor, they say, in Vlissigen:
Aan kust sea and sky dance a light tango,
Ships now close sail for a pale horizon
Where tobacco can be smoked any way.
