Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.

I’ve reached the end of animals—
And this is my new plan:
To write about all nations, and
The first? Afghanistan.

I’ll charge right through the alphabet—
Yes, right from A to Z.
And several months away from now
I’ll know geography!

“We learn by doing”—so I heard
From teachers all through school,
So I will pull the thread and watch
Much doggerel unspool.

And when it ends, I’m sure I’ll know
Some things I’ve never known.
So let’s go circumnavigate—
I’ll be your chaperone!
