Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 16

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


Barbados! Island in the sea!
Such Caribbean mystery!
The capital is Bridgetown, and
Much tourism is the game: the sand

The surf, the winter sun are why
The tourists drop down from the sky
In winter when the cold and snow
Have started in to rage and blow.

When temperatures begin to drop,
We fear that it won’t ever stop
Until the spring, until the rain—
And so … Barbados once again!
