Haiti


———————–Oooh! Haiti! I’ll have a pancake
———————–Á la Port-au-Prince
———————–Just as fast as you can make it,
———————–And top it up with promises
———————–Of reconstruction aid
———————–And promises glib and empty
———————–As ever such were made.

The pancake in question was indeed Port-au-Prince, the Haitian capital ….
