Care of

It's a small world getting, while I'm eating
A bag of vinegary chips in Warwick town centre;
A small world that could change the imprint
From Paris to Sorrento, just in the telling;
And I am here to pursue a line of thought,
As my sister is meeting
An old friend of mine at Christie’s.
Christkind carrying a fir tree, Hertha’s altar,
Tablecloths interlarded with pathos,
The elf who makes the cracker toys, Elen Mölter;
And I am here.
It’s a small world getting, but not for a seer.
