…”Batten the hatches—China & US are poised to clash as they never have before”…”Whiskey, haggis & Auld Lang Syne for Robbie Burns Day”…
SOMETHING ABOUT…“the USA withdrawal from the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) (Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Brunei, Chile, Mexico and Peru, Canada and the United States) sets the stage for an old-fashioned superpower standoff in the Pacific region.”
A sonnet upon sonnets
Fourteen, a sonneteer thy praises sings; What magic myst'ries in that number lie! Your hen hath fourteen eggs beneath her wings That fourteen chickens to the roost may fly. Fourteen full pounds the jockey's stone must be; His age fourteen - a horse's prime is past. Fourteen long hours too oft the Bard must fast; Fourteen bright bumpers - bliss he ne'er must see! Before fourteen, a dozen yields the strife; Before fourteen - e'en thirteen's strength is vain. Fourteen good years - a woman gives us life; Fourteen good men - we lose that life again. What lucubrations can be more upon it? Fourteen good measur'd verses make a sonnet.-Robert Burns
Cheers to a lyrical Wednesday that sings—waxing poetic!
