So Much For A Swiss Education!


So Much For A Swiss Education!

In North Korea Kim Jong Un
Has been on the telly firing a gun
He says he will make us all tremble
As his military might he will assemble.

And the generals are going to make it clear
That they are serious and we should fear
Their mighty army with all those troops
Made best in the world with cabbage soup!

And in his palace as he eats his steak,
With all the trimmings and his own wine lake.
The little tyrant grows ever fatter,
But he calculates it does not matter.

Because they tell him he is a god
Which he believes, the silly sod.
I thought he was a communist leader
The hypocritical little fat bleeder!

So this chubby young man in Beatles gear
Listens to the whispers in his ear
As the generals who hold the real power
Think they are making the whole world cower.

In reality what they don't seem to know
Is how this daft game is likely to go.
If they make one miscalculation
It could lead to serious confrontation.

Whereby a nation seperated and insular
May provoke a war on the peninsula,
And the fearful hell this may lead us to
So what next will this young fatso do?

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
