Which white horse – this one or that – is Russian,
Or does it come under Britannia’s rule?
Perhaps the wave could be Chinese, they feel
Compelled to pursue a global mission,
Though the USA will be duty bound
To claim the oceans as rightfully theirs,
Being de facto governor of world affairs,
Setting the seas on democratic ground.
Time to send a gunboat just to make sure
No competitor’s counter claim persists,
Crewed, of course, by highly trained journalists
To make the news territory secure.
As an exercise in futility,
It’s as sensible as bombing the sea.
