Two Men Lead Billions

Every day on the Daily Poet we present the day's news in poetry form.  Do you want to play too?  Simply pick a news item and place your poem in the comments below.  Poetry and news.  These two were meant to be wed.

A billion here
a billion there

each is selected
by the men in chairs

to rule over
a sixth of all.

The Catholics
and the Chinese

both have a new
leader to

look up to
or criticize
