In the land where silver is sought and bought,
A goat craves not gold, but green in sight.
Five million moons for nest, thus brought,
Yet field and forest yield greater delight.

A snail upon the Silk Road embarks,
Dupont and Dragon negotiate with might.
Yet in the shell of treaties, danger lurks,
Crafted compromises cant cage the flight.

The hare elected mayor in quaint village square,
Then banished from hall, in unfair fight.
In this burrow of scandal, beware,
Even a shepherd's rule can incite slight.
