Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 33

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


At last! A place that I have been!
I’ve been there quite a bit—
The Yukon to Ontario—
And both were such a hit!

The Yukon taught me history—
Ontario, the Bard.
The Stratford Festival is great—
Though Shakespeare can be … hard.

And once I went to Montreal—
I was too young to learn
And went to see a movie there—
A choice that makes me burn.

I could have gone to see the sites—
And learned a thing or two.
Instead—some popcorn, cowboy flick—
I really had no clue.

But, Canada, you’re looking good—
Especially of late.
Perhaps it’s time for you and me
o make another date?
