Canal of Panama, in drought's harsh clasp,
Where boats and trade in thirsty rasp.
Goats of global chains now gasp,
In water's dearth, they grasp and grasp.

India's web, like snails recoiled,
By own hand, the prosper foiled.
Rabbits of the digital field,
In dark burrows, their fate sealed.

In grand bazaar of arms and steel,
Found China, Russia, 'neath the seal.
The dog of war, betrayed his feel,
And Saudi dreams did shatter, reel.
