Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 22

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


Mountains! Deserts! Jungles, too!
Geography that’s fit for you.
Get bored with one? Move on to new!

It features that most famous lake—
Named Titicaca (no mistake),
So large it makes brave swimmers quake.

The list of languages is long—
Just say their names—it’s like a song!
(Pronouncing them, I know I’m wrong.)

A landlocked country ’twixt two P’s—
Peru and Paraguay—a squeeze
Between the two democracies.

Bolivia—so much to see,
From sand and stone to greenery.
I’d fly there now—if it were free.
