A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
It’s got a narrow strip of coast
That doesn’t give much room to boast
But it is full of wonders there—
The animals, the jungle lair
Surrounding it is Senegal—
A map designed by Roald Dahl
Some history of slavery—
Though now those folks are often free
It’s got some crocs; it’s got some snakes—
And that is all it really takes
In Africa ...
To keep me home.
