New Z-Land

My teacher asked me to find New Z-land

On the classroom map

But when it comes to school subjects

Geography's my worst

So I told her I'd find

The rest of the alphabet first


But there was no A land

No B land or C land

No D land or E land

Not an F or a G land

There was no H land or I land

(Though there was an I R land)

No J, K, L, M, N, O or P land

No Q, R, S, T, U or V land

None of these lands could I see

Oh where oh where could New Z-land be?

Nor was there a land for W, X or Y

But then I let out a cry

Because to the right of Australia

And in the middle of the sea

Was that elusive land of Z!
