Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 69

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


If you travel to Guinea (you can’t go by road),
Then you need to check out the viviparous toad.
It is one of those creatures—so rare on this earth:
It’s a toad that delivers its young by live birth.

But enough of frivolity—now time to learn
About Guinea, which lies (as you quickly discern)
On the west coast of Africa—much ocean breeze
With some valuable jungles with critters that seize

Those who are much too careless to care for their lives—
So be so circumspect, all of you husbands and wives,
Every Darrell and Donna, each Gerald and Jenny—
Or you’ll learn there are creatures so hungry in Guinea!
