Oh, great Abiko Minato Sports swimming pool;
Thou art a microcosm of the nation.
Divided be the swimmers' school,
From elderly walkers, to middle-aged salarymen; and kids splashing.
For - segregated by lane - all know their station;
And while a jolly nice swim is as near as this middle-aged alien atheist will come to Heaven,
Why on Earth do they deny entry after 10pm, even though the pool is open TIL ELEVEN?
