Trading Places?

The trade war that Trump is beginning,

We’ve little to no chance of winning;

Be it pork, wheat or wines

Chinese buyers have lines,

With the sub-in suppliers all grinning….


Playing to his strengths

Debating Trump’s mental ability,

Widely misses his proven agility;

He’s proven he cares

About foreign affairs —

Like the ones where he proves his virility.

La Boheme

A plot synopsis for those listening to the broadcast opera today:


Rudolpho’s in love with Mimi,

And Musetta’s in love with Paree;

The group splits for a while

Though they do reconcile,

But Mimi then succumbs to TB.
