Ode to A PCT
Welcome to Peace Corps Belize
To other PCVs life’s a tease
Laying in a hammock, enjoying the breeze
Gotta love that Happy Cow cheese!
Healthy Communities building latrines
Business Org makin reality from dreams
Youth Development forming sports teams
Teacher Trainers explain what it all means
Oh host family filled with thrills!
New lifestyle without frills
So many critters it almost kills
Don’t forget to take those malaria pills!
Working hard throughout training
Language, tech skills, who’s complaining?
Forget your jacket and it’ll always be raining
Not a fact, but I’m just saying…
Seeing sights and letting loose
Tasty gibnut, pigtail, goose??
Getting my fill of jungle juice
With 15 lbs on my caboose
See Nurse Jackie if diarrhea hits
Malaria and dengue really are the pits
Matt will fund your stay at the Garden Ritz
Hopefully soon we’ll get those med kits??!!
Austin’s the man who knows ‘em all
Valentino answers to his baby’s call
Mike McGwire lets his garden grow tall
While Anthony T shops at Chetumal??
LCF’s help us to fit in
If you want a Belizean, talk to Erin
All my clothes came from the free bin
Hey Nina—this is Belize 20-TEN!
Stanley can make your hammock a-aight
Kent will hook you up if you get a bite
Daniel keeps his security locked tight
So don’t walk home alone at night!
Sharmaine makes sure all is straight
Anthony W keeps us from being late
Jinny inspires with quotes on fate
And Jerry’s the guy everybody wants to date
HC can tell you Chanda’s a ten
And Bryan Dwyer is so damn zen!
Jaime Brancato is our mother hen
Making training the best it’s been!
Peace Corps Belize, the job for me
Where else would I rather be?
And my friends now can’t you see?
Barack gave me a machete!!
