This poem is from a return visit to Belfast, (Northern) Ireland in 2008, after 40 years in Australia. The famous black taxis have a history of their own and these days provide tourists with tours of the city and other parts. There are quite a few websites promoting the tours but for a more personal account by a visiting journalist and a Black Taxi Tour via an accompanying Youtube video, visit Café Babel.
