A doggerel series about the countries of the world.
Oh, I remember Lichtenstein!
In seventh grade Geography!
The teacher chose then to assign
To find the smallest we could see
There on the world map. And so
We saw those tiny places that
The most of us just didn’t know—
Like Lichtenstein—the habitat
Of eagle, ptarmigan, and hare—
Of fox and marmet and some deer
And not a government you fear.
Old Austria is just next door—
And Switzerland is right nearby.
And what’s a bigger neighbor for?
To have your back ... so keep them nigh!
