Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 12

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It sits there near the Caspian Sea—
The capital, Baku,
A city rich in history …
I really had no clue

About so much about this place
That once had formed a part
Of that vast empire (Soviet—
Not noted for its heart).

But pictures show a beauty and
A land of mystery—
A place where people have some hope—
The hope that they’ll stay free.
