From Gaza's bow, a sudden hail erupts,
Hamas, its fury forged in flights of flame,
Tel Aviv entwined 'neath endless rocket showers,
Israel, to battle's music, enters, game.

'Tis Washington's bonds that bear the burden,
Under waves of debt, Wall Street set to suffer.
Investors once indifferent now uneasy,
Flood of Treasurys threatens treasure coffer.

Mayor Adams, lord o' glimmering Gotham,
Calls to Colombians far from his city's shore.
Bids not to venture on migrant's maelstrom,
But to find solace in solutions, he implores.
