Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 92

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


In Southeast Asia—far away—
An ancient, lovely land.
The Mekong River flows throughout—
Oh, nothing there is bland.

It’s right next door to Vietnam,
Their histories entwined
In war and peace and other ways—
As you can quickly find.

It’s got some tigers—elephants—
Exotic snakes and more
Inhabiting the jungles—and
Some grisly jungle lore!

It’s landlocked—is the only one
In Southeast Asia thus
Mysterious, it seems in ways,
To many folks (like us).
