Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 19

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


Just west of Guatemala we
Can find Belize. It seems to me
The lovely Caribbean Sea

Has found a very special place
To come ashore—and what a space
Is there!  Some Mayan ruins face

The visitor … such history!
Such elemental mystery—
Reminders of such misery

And such accomplishment of men,
Who (very, very Way Back When)
Explored all wonder, tried some sin.

And now a special tourist spot—
Where sands and sun are very hot—
Where happiness can still be bought!
