The Lyrics

The name "Limbo" conjures up an intriguing combination of Caribbean dancing and Dante's Inferno. In my recent post here , Dante analyzes Limbo as a permanent retirement home. Perhaps it is more realistic to consider it an untapped tourist destination......
Want to visit Limboland?
Rick Steves help you understand
Limbo-folks are tourist-shy
Complicated reasons why.
Limbo-visa hard to get -
Seem that none been printed yet
I.T. system's way behind
Limbo-stuck in Dante's time.

What to pack for Limbo-trip?
Don't need sunscreen - get a grip!
Limbo-weather always same
Sticky days, we're not to blame
Limbo-neighbors turn up steam
Get so burned they moan and scream
Don't advise excursion there
If no Hazmat suit to wear.

Limbo-talk in Limbo-land
Locals hard to understand.
Few speak Eng., they all speak It.
Antique Limbo-dialect.
Limbo-customs might appeal -
Walk feet flat with weight on heels
Limbo-nights - no moon or stars
Lean back in or under bars.

Got good staff in Limbo-Inns
They commit no Limbo-sins
New construction runs amuck
Building projects all get stuck.
Might not find a hotel-room
Now or when you're in your tomb
Limbo-book with kids and wife
For the Limbo-afterlife.
