In archipelago's embrace, a tussle unfolds,
'Neath the veil of azure skies and beaches of gold.
India and China, their rivalry takes a hold,
On Maldivian sands, a tale of power told.

Changes stir upon the wind, in the East held tight,
Farmers frantically replant, by the dragon's might.
Fear arises 'nigh, in the heart of the night,
For if China stays not, what becomes of their plight?

Beyoncé, Ellison, in Rappaport's golden sphere,
Where superbrokers operate, both far and near.
He stakes as he speaks, though the end draws near,
A court's verdict echoes, bearing potential fear.
