Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 116

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.


It’s in the Balkans—has a view:
The Adriatic Sea.
It’s ripped with rugged mountains
And with rivers fierce and free.

A potpourri of tongues you’ll hear
If you should visit there.
From Serbian to Bosnian—
Croatian’s in the air! 

It split from Yugoslavia
In June 2006.
It has some canyons and some caves—
Oh, there is quite a mix!

“Black mountains”—that is what
Its name in English means,
And bear and deer and boar are there
To complement the scenes.
