The Golden Pig Baby Business
By Don Iannone

No reduction this year
in China's population.
Crossover the pig and gold
in Chinese astrology,
and you get millions
of lucky new Golden Pig babies.
Happens every sixty years--
that's five years short
of the years needed for you and me to retire.
We should be so lucky,
or be a Golden Pig baby.
Auspicious or suspicious?
Maybe some of each.
Does it matter?
Not really.
Mother Nature will ultimately weigh in
on China's popping Pig baby population.
Don't mean to me cynical, but
ask Proctor and Gamble, Toyota,
or any major corporation across the world
porking up on the fertile Chinese market.
For them,
it's the Year of the Golden Ringing Cash Register.
So, bring on those Golden Pig babies.

Cynical but with a smile, Don. At only 300 miles from where I live, China has to be close to my thoughts often. Good one Don!

Thanks Polona,Russell, and Trinitystar...just a tad cynical, I guess. Russell, that's right you are pretty darn close to the action.
