Poppycock Cornucopia – Issue 32

HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE KOREA?

She primes nuclear and scares the world

Battledress to spread bald fear

Her wishes frighten the mass

Causing whistles over there

what’s underneath her surface

Causes Communism to shed a tear

To call it such is logically shabby

She’s tempting fate for ever

The final bell will surely peal

She’s always late for everything

It’ll be the end of everything

Except for a new deal

I fear having to say it

But I really really feel

Korea’s not an asset to the planet

The thought’s awful to contemplate

And Korea doesn’t make me laugh

How do you solve a problem like Korea?

How do you think of it and not feel down?

Which epithet properly describes Korea?

A dictatorship! A Will-of-puppeteers! A frown!

She’s not listening to anything you might tell her

Talking only seems to harden her hand

But how could you make her go away?

To ensure the world dies another day

How do you make an ostrich understand?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Korea?

How do you keep a rogue state in your hand?

When she talks at the west I’m confused

When they talk at her I’m bemused

Auntie Korea fighting Uncle Sam!

Predictable as Armageddon

Missiles flighty fingers on the button

She’s a demon! She’s a terror! She’s an ‘I am!’

She trumps any other pest

Puts her fingers up to all the west

Makes Uncle Sam look like an old aunt’s hair curl

She’s insane! She’s insular!

She’s MAD! She’s not mild!

She’s an assache! She’s no angel!

She’s a vortex!

How do you solve a problem like Korea?

How do you think of it and not feel down?

Which epithet properly describes Korea?

She doesn’t listen to anything you might tell her

Talking only seems to harden her hand

But how could you make her go away?

To ensure the world dies another day

How do you make an ostrich understand?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Korea?

Not by holding a missile in your gland?
