News poem (Week 30): Royal baby Spring

News poem (Week 30): Royal baby Spring

Egypt’s ablaze, Syria too,
the West is confused, ‘what to do, what to do?’
Tunisia smoulders in the heat of the Med,
Mr Arab Spring, are you asleep or just dead?

That quagmire the Middle East constitutes,
‘quarrels with borders’, some say, quite uncouth,
might be geo-politically vital, but gee, 
some perspective, please, someone's just had a baby!
