    The town and its heat are described in Victor Courtney’s poem ‘The Man from Marble Bar.’

    Satan sat by the fires of Hell
    As from endless time he’s sat,
    And he sniffed great draughts of the brimstone’s smell
    That came as the tongue-flames spat;

    Then all at once the devil looked stern
    For there in the depths of Hell
    Was a fellow whom never a flame could burn
    Or goad to an anguished yell;

    So Satan stalked to the lonely scene
    And growled with a stormy brow,
    ‘Now, stranger, tell me what does this mean?
    You should be well scorched by now.’

    But the chappie replied with a laugh quite new;
    ‘This place is too cold by far
    Just chuck on an extra log or two
    I’VE COME IN FROM MARBLE BAR!
