could be more different
than the North Korean Leader
and the American President.
One fascinated with military,
wants nuclear capabilities
at the expense of social services.
Obsessed with appearance
he turned hairstyle
He doesn’t trust
his neighbour to the south
and wants an insurmountable obstacle
along the border.
Nor does he trust the free media,
or even his closest advisors.
They don’t last long on the job.
And he doesn’t like to be confused
