Around the World in the Good Ship DOGGEREL, 128

A doggerel series about the countries of the world.

North Korea.

Well, here’s some news (of course it’s not!):
We don’t know much about this spot.
I do know that so many fought

Back in that 1950s’ war—
To stop the Communists. So far
That has not worked too well—sub-par,

At least in North Korea, Yo,
Where progress has been oh so slow—
But rockets rise, as you well know,

And once again we face the choice:
To fight—or use the human voice
To settle things—and thus rejoice

At human rationality.
I dread what happens—what we’ll see
If missiles fly at you and me.

So here’s a plea for all of us
To use our minds (no blunderbuss!)—
Avoid the nukes: Discuss! Discuss!
