Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 99

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It’s in the southern Baltics—it’s
The southernmost of all.
It broke (USSR)
In ’90—heard the call

Of independence. It’s the call
That’s loudest in all parts:
It resonates in ears and minds—
And animates our hearts.

The climate there is moderate—
And even somewhat mild—
And roaming through the forests there
Are wolves—oh, yeah, they’re wild!

And deer, and elk, and mink, as well—
Oh, quite a motley crew!
A few things you can kill and eat,
And one that can eat you!
