|It doesn't take a crystal ball to know that China wants to play a role in the Middle East.|
They are welcome to a role; I don't mind in the least.
I wish them all kinds of luck in brokering a peace.
See if they enjoy the job of being world police.
We could, surely, use a break 'cause it's a thankless job.
Think we've got a deal worked out and then one side will lob
One more precondition or extension of a wall
And the treaty falls apart with no progress at all.
Syria has made the Middle East a powder keg.
Secretary Kerry has done everything but beg,
Looking for assistance. If the Chinese want a turn
I'd say that's an offer we cannot afford to spurn.
