Beware the Spanish kite!

Zapatero is biding his time, is the premonitory drift of Quarrell betweene the Dutch & English by Anon (via Polly Curtis@Guardian):

The Belgick Frogge, out of the bogge, with Brittish mouse doth strive:
The Iberian Kite meane while by slight, surprizeth both alive.
While for their shares, of Indian wares, English & Dutch doe brawle;
The Spanyards watch, advantage catch, to seize on them & all.
Then bee agreed, and take good heed,
Make not a needles fray:
Lest to a third (that ravenous Bird)
You both bee made a pray.
