— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) 1635811972000Translated, the poem reads: “Beanstalks are ignited to boil beans The beans in the pot cry out We are born of the same root Why should we incinerate each other with such impatience?” Some online commentators pointed to the rivalry between cryptocurrencies Dogecoin and Shiba Inu to explain the tweet from Musk, who frequently advocates for Dogecoin on social media. The newer Shiba Inu token — another meme coin that appears to have been inspired by its canine-themed cousin — has overtaken Dogecoin in market value, and proponents of the tokens have been sniping at each other about the situation.
