A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
I haven’t been there—not so far.
I’ve been to England and to Wales.
But Scotland? Ireland? I’m sub-par
And have not seen them. But the tales
I know from several friends who go,
It seems, each year. Now, one is Jim,
Whom I have known for years. The flow
The many Irish tales from him—
Just endless entertainment, and,
Accordingly, I feel I have
Been there—have seen the Emerald Land!
But his adventures are no salve
For sites unseen—for sights unseen—
And there are many now, I fear.
I wish to go where I’ve not been—
But fail to have supply of Year.
