is an ancient Phoenician
port on the Mediterranean
Sea which is nowadays the capital city of the Lebanon
It is a busy shipping and mercantile centre and is noted for the production of Silk, Wool, and Fruit.

A yogi from far-off Beirut
for women did not care a hoot,
But his organ would stand
In a manner quite grand
When a snake-charmer played on his flute.
