Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 104

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


The cultures there are varied—mixed;
The country has me so transfixed.

Religions there are varied, too.
(Oh, something must be right for you!)

So many love its beaches white—
But some are worried: jungle fright!

It’s got some tiger, leopard, boar—
And crocodile (oh, lots of lore)—

And elephant and jaguar—yikes!
And crocodiles hold deep dislikes.

There are two massive towers there—
They slice up through Malaysian air.

So there you see it all writ large—
The towers show that man’s in charge …

Until, you know, a tiger
