In land of rising sun, Zelensky braves,
To G-7 venturing, with Biden knaves,
He seeks yon guarded aid to guard his shore,
Anon, to his belle strags, those dogs of war.

But harks, the debt-ceiling falters, and craven talks cease,
Dealing betwixt White House and House Rep's peace,
Averting the default by moon's next gloam,
Negotiations halt, naught sav'st our home.

Yet lo, an empire thrives midst turmoil faced,
As bank of JPMorgan grips lands embraced,
First Republic fell, but fain didst grow,
America's giant treads, her merganser's tow.
