Upon the day of Terror's birth, in aught
Stout Yankees forsook the Hamas tract,
To Israel entrusted their informat rote,
Al Qaedas cruel captains to distract.

In the heart of Silicon Valley's fertile ground,
Bursts forth the chip industry, robust and sound.
From the ashes of decline, now up they bound,
Intel and Samsung, recovery found.

Upon the brink of frigid confrontation, stand,
The mighty eagle and the dragon grand.
In San Francisco's hall, 'tis planned,
Both Biden and Xi shall make their stand.
