A Little Over 100 Days In - How Is Kim Jong-un Doing?
President Obama visited Observation Post Ouellette, a fortified, military outpost on the border between North and South Korea, during recent Nuclear Security Summit talks in Seoul. He expressed growing frustration with North Korea's insistence that it will test fire a long range missile next month.
President Obama's coming home from overseas.
He was in Korea when he told Kim Jong-un; Please,
Do remember that the food we've promised to you guys
Will not be delivered if your missile system flies.
He was there for meetings with world leaders to discuss
How they can secure their nukes and make it safe for us.
Right next door, a little North, a tin pot loony planned
To continue pushing Us. Does he not understand
This is an election year - and not just in the States?
China, Russia, France - have got a lot upon their plates.
North Korea's pushed too far, I think. I hope they learn
Soon, before they're stuck with watching all their bridges burn.
'though he doesn't face a vote, he does now face a test;
Will this brand new leader fall in line with all the rest?
It's an opportunity to see his people fed
And to show his neighbors North Korea's sanely led.
A little over 100 days after the death of his father, Kim Jong-un may be trying to consolidate his hold on power by engaging in the same game of bait and switch played by his dad. I suspect that it won't work for him, either.
