Tensions in relations between Romania and Hungary have not eased as of yet, but rather escalated. Transylvania remains a bone of contention between Hungary and Romania.
(From newspaper reports)
Budapest stares at Bucharest
In a very menacing way.
It looks as if it’s hatching plans
To gobble it up one day.
But Budapest has been bought out
By the German treasury,
And it resists losing hope
And caving in to the Romanians,
Bucharest clearly wants
To add to its territory
By grabbing up in one fell swoop.
The North of Transylvania.
The Hungarian cabinet to Bucharest
Sent a diplomatic protest.
But very brazenly Budapest
Was answered by Bucharest.
Thus on the sly
Two hungry spiders
Argue and quarrel
In Hitler’s jar.
