Price of rice goes up by twice

Oh me! Oh my! Oh me! Oh my! The price of rice is record high!

 

By Dr. Seuss, Posthumous Reporter

 

Oh, dear! Oh, dear! What have we here? An agricultural crisis, I fear.

 

From there to here, from here to there, the price of rice is just not fair.

 

Gooble-di-gop, gooble-di-gop, the prices keep soaring, when will it stop? When will the per unit share value drop, when will prices stabilize for this staple crop?

 

Of all the grain staples, rice is the best. But shortages can lead to social unrest, and people all over the world will protest, from Ho Chi Minh City to Budapest.

 

Nutritional intake is going down, and it’s causing a lot of people to frown. Stockpiles are dropping, holy cow! Green Revolution, where are you now?

 

Oh the things that can happen, and frequently do, when exports are down, and imports are too. The NFA says it will increase the price, but will this be enough, will it suffice? Exactly whose governments will this entice? I don’t think it’s fair, and I don’t think it’s nice.

 

In many places, people are sad. They can’t recoup the gains they once had. Others are hungry, and feeling mad. Yes, this is very, very bad.

 

Why is the price for rice so bad? I do not know. Go ask your dad.
