Very busy weekend for our European friends;
Several key elections that reflect disturbing trends.
Nicolas Sarkozy lost in France, across the pond;
President's now Socialist. The first since Mitterrand.
Greece has also voted and they're facing quite a mess.
Parliament's divided so there's no chance of success
Implementing anything. They'll have to try and make
Allies out of enemies... Won't be a piece of cake.
Putin's Russia's President - again. He took the oath.
Germany and England held elections where they both
Saw that parties now in charge are losing their support.
E.U. is in trouble, I am sorry to report.
British do not like the cuts their government has made.
Merkel's in hot water for extending German aid.
Seems that Europe isn't thrilled with being so austere.
Worried 'cause what happens there effects what happens here.
Markets will not like this news, I bet... You wait and see.
They believe that those across the pond want lunch for free.
Can't blame hungry Europeans voting for a break;
But I'm still afraid they've made a terrible mistake.
