Gran Canaria's Guanchitos
To Vicky we say "gracias!"
for bringing us biscuits from Las Palmas
bought on the island of Gran Canaria
a sun drenched, beach blessed volcanic area.
Nestling off the Western Saharan Coast
it was Columbus who loved it the most
in fourteen hundred and ninety two
he anchored there with his steadfast crew
Enroute to discover the United States
Chris disembarked for R&R with ship mates.
No doubt he tasted the local galleta
the Guanchito - once bitten you'll never forget her!
