Fake Babas East, Fake Babas West

November 9, 2017

(with apologies to Kipling)

OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two scamming men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!
