Handshakes Across the Globe
by
Bookmark and Share
  Journey from the Wall of China to the Atlantic,
And toss a link from Jerusalem to Italy,
Export Colombian coffee beans to Spain,
And stretch your smile out
to Germany.

Bring Brazil on a hike to the Himalayas,
Play hide-in-the-Pacific with Japan,
Carry Liberia to the Eiffel Tower,
And bring back French wines
to the motherland.

Pour the oils of Iran on Canadian steel,
To loosen a course from Greenwich to a Caribbean beach,
Take the snow cones of the coldest Arctic,
To cool the tensions of
the Middle East.

Negotiate with Russia, but teach them the song
Of an African village and an Indian groove,
And as you walk the black beaches of Hawaii,
Recollect teaching Netherlands
a salsa move.

Small gestures to harmonize our world,
Could be as easy as teaching Australia to electric slide,
And when you're hitch-hiking back to England,
Nigeria will offer you
the ride.
