Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 50

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.

Dominican Republic.

It shares its island: To the west
Lies Haiti—it’s a heavy test
For those who help their fellow man—
They struggle and do all they can.

It’s got some mountain ranges—four!
(There is not room for any more.)
Some plains and valleysand some beach
That lies nearby—in easy reach.

They love the game of baseball there—
The sunny clime, the gentle air.
Except, of course, for hurricanes.
And then it blows! And then it rains!

And everyone complains.
