Vice President Richard Nixon confronting a very witty Burmese communist

room United States

In December 1983, Vice President Richard Nixon confronts a very witty Burmese communist outside Pegu. The sign reads: Pax Vobiscum 
Scant regard for homo sapiens of the East
Begets doubts about your move for peace.

To ensure for ravenous wolves of Wall Street
An easy lie and wealthy retreat
