A thought on the Italian elections…

The land of pizza and pasta
Goes to the polls this week
But not to say ‘basta
It’s stability they seek

The choices they face are wide
A movement of Five Stars
Silvio’s seeking to regain his pride
But some say he should be behind bars !

Global markets are nervous
As well they ought to be
The growth curves are not yet bulbous
The bad news is there for all to see.

And, postscriptum, farewell, Holy Father
Sixteenth of the Benedictine line
Not sure what you achieved
But I’m sure history’ll treat you just fine !
