A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
A landlocked country. Europe. East.
Minsk: Capital of Belarus.
The KGB—oh, such a beast!—
Was centered there. Could Dr. Seuss
Have drawn a building such as that?
It doesn’t seem so—not to me—
A place to please no Cat in Hat—
Nor Who nor Lorax certainly.
Primeval forests. Countryside.
The views are stunning, so I’ve read.
But still I’ve grieved and still I’ve sighed
For KGB—for those now dead.
