Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 83

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


Jamaica is an island land—
Renowned for sun and surf and sand.
Resorts are there—a reggae band

Or two. I have not been there, sad
To say. But I am not too mad
(That’s “angry,” though I’m both, a tad—

Both angry and insane a bit—
But you should just get over it—
Unless you want to see a fit?!)

Its history is colonial—
Reminders everywhere—until—
Yes—1962—the bill

Of independence came. And now
It’s known for different things somehow—
From Marley to a boa—wow!
