ramblings and things

There's a little place in Austria
Which has an unwilling fame
Because of the unfortunate spelling
In English of that village's name.
Location signs are stolen
Almost as soon as they are made
They are getting a bit annoyed
With the tourist trade.
They are blaming the British
Which seems a bit unfair
Don't they realise English is spoken
And read almost everywhere.
 I know it's a nuisance
But really it must pay
Tourists flock in to take selfies
Almost every single day.
In this modern world 
Thanks to the smart phone
No place in this world
Can ever be alone.
It's pronounced differently but
The the spelling is the same:
Modesty won't allow me
 To reveal that village name.
