Across the Pond - Europe


European Union's having troubles of their own;
Looks as if the folks in Greece might need another loan.
Italy is also shaky. Germany's not thrilled.
Former warm relations between countries growing chilled.

Greeks are feeling put upon - Italians up in arms.
Having common currency has clearly lost its charms.
Germany may force reforms; they have a lot of clout.
Sadly, they're not making friends by bailing these 2 out.

As the unemployment rises Germany gets blamed.
Fiscally they're in the right but passions are inflamed.
Wouldn't want to be the guy who has to tell the Greeks
They aren't finished cutting. They've been rioting for weeks.
