Advice To A Grand Daughter
Poem By Bill Scovell
Poetic advice to a grand daughter torn between taking an unpaid job on a newspaper in Vladivostok and the alternative, a position with the Australian merchant bank 'Macquarie'
Faberge eggs and samovars,
Troika carts and Romanov Tsars,
Beetroot Borscht and a Lemon Tea,

Just a clone of old Rasputin,
View such interest from afar,
Hitch your dreams to the 'Mac' bank star.
