Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 56

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It sits there on the Baltic Sea
And once had been a part
Of that empire called Soviet—
Not noted for its heart.

’Twas back in 1991—
USSR collapsed—
And freedom came with swiftness that
Was some surprise, perhaps.

Old castles are distributed
About this rugged land.
And many islands join the whole—
Below the high command.

The economy is very sound—
They have no massive debt.
Renewables are popular.
(A lesson we should get.)
