If you should ever travel from the town

Of Split towards Dubrovnik further down

The Adriatic coast, you’d better take

Your passport for the coach will need to make

Its way through several miles of coastal road

The Dayton Treaty awkwardly bestowed

Upon the state of Bosnia. This chops

In half the nation either side and stops

Croatians passing quite as easily

From north to south as they once did. For we

Intrepid tourists this is all a plus-

Another country ticked off! Lucky us!

And briefly, in a car park by the sea,

We get to stretch our legs and have a pee.

Going to the Lavatory in Bosnia
