Kim Jong-un leader of the starving

I wonder what your thinking, in your country far away
And what on earth possesses you to threaten mine today
You allow your people to starve, munitions they are first
While daily people starve to death and many die of thirst

Your father and grandfather should have taught you how to care
Instead they shared their legacy of treating people unfair
Many live in work camps with three generations or more
Simply because they disagreed, so now all must chore

You live in style above the rest, have people who adore
But deep down, I believe that each person longs for more
You teach hatred and despise my country each and every day
For freedom and free choice would take yours away

Your people follow in fear, like robots in a line
I wonder how long they will conform or will it be your time
More and more try to escape, or die instead of live
In a country such as yours that takes much more than it gives

Each building,statue, memorial you have to tell a tale
Of twisted truths and travesties instead they often fail
For freedom is what's needed in the country you call home
Grow food instead of opium,and leave the people alone

You have the power in your hands to change what was past
Hurry please before it's too late you must do it fast
Do not start a war in which more people will die
Because your father and grandfather started it with a lie.

    surely Queen Elizabeth is much the same as this / unaccountable monarchs really take the piss / i hope the british public wake up pretty soon / until then long live our leader the glorious Kim Jong Un

    This is what happens when people rule from right of passage instead of free elections. He is just a dumb kid and has no idea how to run a country. Great poem. Thank you for your kind comments. Love, Joyce

    Jennifer I think you should have this printed out in thousands and ask the airforce to drop them over North Korea...and add a footnote to their people to wake up and start living their own lives, very well done..David

    I feel so much for them, I have been drawn in last few months to learn more about them. I so wish it could be different. He scares me so.
