Comparisons that fail to check out,
The IMF made a din,
About the recession we’ll be in,
If we decide, in the end, to come out.

Maduro thought emergency powers would be smart,
In getting hold of the levers,
Of power over the disbelievers,

Unless we want the laws protection to withdraw.

In the night an AirEgypt plane,
Appears to have gone down in flame,
Crashing into the sea,
After disappearing mysteriously,
The cause we cannot yet ascertain.
