Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 67

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


I know that I had never heard
Of this near island—till the word
Of our invasion—’83.
A Reagan deed—voila! they’re free!

It’s on the Caribbean there—
Complete with beaches, ocean air.
They’re known for nutmeg, by the way—
That egg-nog stuff? On Christmas Day?

The Brits were there—the French were, too.
But they have gone (as conquerors do).
And tourists flock there from the cold—
A journey that does not grow old!
