Weekly Poem - Vasco da Gama

Vasco da Gama

From Portugal did da Game sail
For he was determined not to fail.

At discovering an ocean route around Good Hope
In Africa, he was able to cope.

With unhappy people along the way,
He traded but was not always willing to pay.
To India, da Gama did next go
Bust he had to leave quickly so

There weren't many goods inside
His ship and many crewman died

However, da Gama was a hero in name
And provided him money and fame.
