The three principal products of Peru—
Does anyone remember them who’s not
Enrolled in elementary school? Textiles
Is usually a good guess, and oil
Should American troops be deployed in
The particular exotic country under
                    Cities of great importance tend
To be located on rivers and gulfs, where goods are traded,
But mountain ranges, soothing to behold,
Interfere with communication, and
May be the source of stressful isolation.
Topography is various and never
Less than interesting and yet the same
Can be said of staying in a single place
For a lifetime, 
                        In which case changes will be temporal,
Your family and friends growing older,
Weaker, sicker, sadder, broker, dumber,
Although those days you sit on your front porch
You don’t regret not being in Peru.
