A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
Gabon lies on the eastern coast
Of Africa. It is well-known
That it has parks (oh, yes, Gabon!)
That people like to see the most.
Gorillas roam there—buffalo
Are there as well. And elephants.
You hear some scary roars and grunts—
But, still, a place I’d love to go.
They also have petroleum
In vast reserves. They have it all—
From jungles, oil, a monkey’s call.
To me it says: “Oh, you should come!”
