In China's heart, commercial races do run,
Starbucks once did shine, now outshone by the Sun.
Luckin, the rival, doth now lead the pact,
In world's second realm, they've the better act.

Home unfinished arise, a problem great,
Billions set aside, yet they lie in wait.
Poised to aid the masons, the chisels, the trow,
Yet the logjam grows deeper in shadows now.

In Gaza after war, discord does spread,
Pondering leadership, where to be led.
Palestinian Authority in critics sight,
For struggles in the West Bank, amid their fight.
