A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
End of the Voyage
Our voyage now is over, and
I guess there’s no debate:
The way we took was not the best
Our alphabetical approach
Required some zigs and zags—
Some crazy navigation, Yo,
To sail to all those flags.
I have to say: I learned a lot—
A lot I didn’t know.
Yes, countries I’d not heard about—
You think I’m kinda … slow?
And one-nine-five? So many lands
For me to write about.
Some repetition sailed with me—
Of that you have no doubt!
But here we are—we’re back in port—
No more will this ship roam.
It’s due for scuttling—very soon.
But now—at last!—we’re home!
