any port,when ships come in,people bring cultures-
some illegal,many simply diverse-Amsterdam,San Francisco-
cafes,conversations,languages,drugs,contraband,habits from other lands
A port obeys looser rules of conduct via the open sea-
one way or another,you can always leave
Marseilles has traditionally been a wild scene-
as in any harbor with waves of migration patterns
London was Londinium for Rome,and later home for a British Naval Empire
Portsmouth a smaller version ,and Bristol same
The sea has always been a gateway-and it swings both ways
Refugees come from other war zones-others will sail away-to/from
London,Amsterdam,Sydney,Portsmouth,Bristol and Marseilles...
