The Kettle Haters of Lanzarote

No-one in Lanzarote has a kettle,
It’s really hard to get your water hot,
When all is said and done, you have to settle
For heating up your water in a pot.

This kettle-fearing island’s population
Have banned attempts to foster this device,
Perhaps it is their catholic persuasion,
Or maybe ‘cos they just don’t like the price.

Two and four slice toasters are prolific,
Coffee makers gleam in glass and metal.
Microwaves are deemed to be terrific,
But God forbid you ask them for a kettle.
