55er-The Joyful Ambassador
Diplomats, in their icy style, trying to make a deal.
No, the rich nation would not write off its loans.
Oh! The poor nation would not open its markets.
Rich men smug. The poor will yield eventually.
In walks secretary. Whispers into poor ambassadors ear.
He jumps, face agleam with joy.
"Ghana beat USA 2-1."
(Dedicated to Kofi Annan)
