A quirky look at life from a Yorkshire poet and his dog's perspective
little men with massive egos
claiming that they're great amigos
shiny suits and slimy smiles
mask their wary, leery styles.
vintage wine, not cheap sangria
lubricates their big ideas
truffled tart and lobster bisque;
is hardly diplomatic risk.
talks in private, camera-grins
little progress, no one wins
yet these lavish explorations
were well worth the preparation.
money really is no object
statesmanship their chosen subject;
to keep again this paradigm
they'll meet again in two weeks time.
