(Epigram-style poem)

<<Story related to the poem>>

Ho Chi Minh ‘planted’

To reap a return in hundred years.
He must see they are now supplanted
By the capitalist people,
To reap a return in zillion years!

*** The late ‘great’ Ho Chi Minh once ‘wisely’ said: 
“To reap a return in ten years, plant trees. To reap a return in hundred years, ‘plant’ people.”
