Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un,

Hardly my idea of fun;

Talking about defence from aggression,

Sanity plainly not in session.


Clearly the smoke screen to employ

To mask their tendency to destroy;

Attack is their chosen form of defence

Oh, for some sign of common sense.


Paranoia's the name of the game,

Always finding others to blame,

As a wondering world looks on,

Praying both might soon be gone.

Thanks for the comments. I wonder if the North Korean dictator
thinks about the meeting he had with a certain Donald Trump as
he dances the diplomatic two-step with Putin. It makes for
fascinating conjecture about what goes on and the potential
outcome in the long term, with the coming US election in mind.

Plus ca change, MC. To those who are anti-American, I say “Try Russia, North Korea and China as your landlord”.

Perfectly put, MC. If this pair weren't so frightening they would be truly comic.

Humorous verse at its best. It could also easily apply to Joe Biden and Benjamin Netanyahu.
Thank you for this,
