Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 34

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.

Central African Republic (CAR).

It sits there in the heart of all
Of Africa, surrounded by
Some other lands. And there such tall
Impressive trees, expansive sky

Above savannas. It was once
A colony of France. But then
Some freedom came. A boy (a dunce)
(’Twas I), oh, very way back when

Could not on one perplexing quiz
Identify the CAR.
A sorry grade ensued. (A whiz
I wasn't—not enough to bar

Me from a future—such relief!)
But now I see it on a map—
My years of duncehood—very brief.
Geography! No more a sap!
