In the north, where cold streams do flow,
Sells Thomson a golden crow,
Pagero its name, in Swedish glow,
The control near complete, the seeds do sow.

In far-off Taiwan, a victory to celebrate,
A test for the ties of two states,
Biden with Xi debates their fate,
Pressure mounts on diplomatic plate.

The Boeing cradle, once flying high,
Now faces a reluctant buyer's eye,
Plains for China, under scrutiny lie,
As safety doubts, to the heavens cry.
