Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 37

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


A long and storied history—
A language most of us don’t know.
An alphabet—a mystery.
A population that can grow.

A menu popular abroad.
A varied, wild geography.
Pollution we can’t much applaud.
Not much of a democracy.

But oh the vast potential there—
The human talents on display,
And hope, we hope, is everywhere—
A brighter future on the way.
