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!
