Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 63

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


No longer is it Soviet—
They’re thrilled about it—yes, you bet!

It sits there on the eastern shore—
The Black Sea—and there’s so much more

About the country’s history—
Its varied rich geography:

From mountains that seem everywhere—
And swamps and farmland? They are there.

For farming, forests have been cleared,
So it is not what it appeared

To be so long ago …
          I  find
That I’ve got Georgia on my mind!
