A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
It is that long and skinny one—
The one that’s mountainous and right
Along the coast. And, oh, the sight
Of Andes’ peaks—surpassed by none.
It reaches almost to the tip—
Its continental coast. And there
The winds attack—that frenzied air—
And threaten every passing ship.
Alpacas roam the mountain range—
And lots of other creatures wild
Delight the eye—and have beguiled
The visitors who seek the strange.
