When West Looks East - Poem by Kiranjit Singh Bajaj
The Greeks take to the streets,
And it's not for a big fat Greek wedding,
The austerity drive to cut them to size,
Painfully has the Euro-zone reeling.
The Dow nosedives close to a thousand,
As analysts are still unsure and unable to fathom,
If it's the Greeks, the 'fat finger' or a computer glitch,
That has triggered the market to its knees.
The oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico widens,
As B.P. attempts to cap with domes,
The leaks that spell one of the worst ecological disasters,
And threatens to form an island of its own.
The Brits go in for elections,
To mandate what appears a hung parliament,
As back home we have our own but unequivocal verdict,
Hang the terrorist Kasab to death!
Asia leads the recovery,
With a flight from the Euro to the Dollar,
It's the Yen that withstands the yin-yang of things,
Obama, why bother with the Chinese Yuan now?
