Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 113

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It used to be, well, Soviet
(About as rough as it can get)—
Yes, freedom’s better—oh, you bet!

It sits in Eastern Europe, where
Its got some vineyards growing there,
And moderate, the country’s air.

They’ve quite a mix of cultures, too—
And languages (far more than two);
Romanian’s official glue,

The language that’s supposed to bind
(You know—the sharing kind),
But it is not too hard to find

The others spoken by the men
And women there. And who knows when
All will unite? With words their skin?

It’s got some wolf, some badger, boar,
Some wildcat, deer, and many more.
But who on earth is keeping score?
