Topsy Turvy

Some hobo in Illinois wins a million dollars
The President’s Cabinet bounces checks on Capitol Hill
Governor Moonbeam is running second in Illinois

A hundred and fifty vehicles collide on a highway in Japan
South Africa votes to end Apartheid
An earthquake in Turkey buries hundreds

A bomb in Buenos Aires obliterates city blocks
Some small bugs have infested my kitchen
and there are worms in the basement
