Alter Schwede!

Part of Norm 2.0’s photo challenge Thursday Doors.

Thank you for visiting.

Why *Old Swede*? Alter Schwede! is an exclamation of surprise or dismay like Great Scott! While I can’t imagine Sir Walter Scott ever made it to Wismar, this town in the North of Germany was often visited by Swedes in the past and probably still is.

Thursday Doors – Stop the Thief

I used to cling to the belief
That there are ways to stop a thief.
So just to make it complicated
I bought three U-locks
And then waited.
Alas, the thieves, they were no fools,
They brought along the needed tools.
But recently I stopped to stare,
I saw a bike that wasn‘t there!
For thieves one possibility is left -
Virtual theft.

What about the door(s)? Hidden behind the bicycle that isn’t there.
