Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 26

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It is a tiny country there—
Small borders and small sky.
It’s on the isle of Borneo,
This place that’s named Brunei.

Nearby lies the South China Sea—
A mosque that’s so well-known
Throughout Islamic cultures--and
From jungles comes the moan

From a proboscis monkey that
Is sorry for his fate—
A sizable proboscis is
A hindrance on a date.

It got its independence in,
Yes, 1984.
And now its tiny presence is
One thing it’s noted for.
