    How will Trump's Trade War work out?

    "A rose red city
    half as old as time"
    caught not by trade war
    but a shift of trade route.

    That focus came late
    and grew from just the seed of
    of a phrase that came to mind
    "they had drunk the well-spring dry"

    This is a beautiful treatment of a desolate reality.

    Trade Winds

    Trade Route-Trade Rout





    Now only wind borne

    ghosts might sigh

    and pour the sand

    from hand to hand

    for the wealth

    of the Nabataean.

    So it is that Empires die

    and under the sun

    their bleached bones lie,

    no silks, no scents, no memory

    of far-off Imperial Cathay.

    For they had drunk

    the well-spring dry,

    leeched trade's

    Caravanserai

    and supped till

    desolation fell

    on the pillared

    halls of Petra.
