It's a poem about Belize


A Poem about Belize


It's true we're heading overseas

But not to the antipodes,

Nor to Bermuda's vortices,

But where, by all analyses,

The hummingbirds, dressed in cerise,

Trill among the coco trees

Whose trunks are like parentheses,

Whose sap is used for antifreeze,

Whose wood is strong as Hercules

Whose fruit is rich in manganese.

All indices point to Belize.


And if they don't lose my valise

I shall not be too hard to please
