Peruvian Coke

Shining Path rebels
and armed gangs protect
Peru’s quality coca crop.

Production excels
As workers collect
From lush fields with nary a stop.

A-one coke compels
Addicts to select
Peruvian goods when  they shop.

The greedy cartels
Know how to connect
With U.S. where prices are top.

[Peru is now the largest producer of cocaine. The United States is still the world’s largest consumer of cocaine.]

(Based on Associated Press article, “Global drug conference puts spotlight on Peru’s cocaine problem“, June 24, 2012.)
