What's this I hear on radio
Politics in ebb and flow
Is North Korea in retrograde?
Should we call a Spade a Spade?
At the dizzy pace at which we go
Hope springs eternal as we know
Trump plans to travel there in May
Olympic summit underway?
Bold brinkmanship, new role of dice
Will a change of mood suffice?
Conflicting news bytes, cut and thrust
Time to let our rapiers rust?
We're at a turning point at last
The pundits ponder – what a task!
We hope and pray for better things
While guardian angels flap their wings ...
