Kim Jong-un just isn’t hungry

The delicacies were done for the night
Various foods in subtle sauces
Imported from wherever, whenever
Too much left on fine china
Or just congealing

Some uttered carefully
Such waste would stir little controversy
He looked rational today
Stone cold and vaguely competent
The qualities of leader

On the balconies
Nooses were being readied
(He preferred “Neese”)

So sorry
The neese were being readied
For the nightly festivities
As the oysters started to smell
More than a little fishy

He sent someone to take care of the smell
To keep the focus on the entertainment
All the wonderful performers

But it was too late
The smell had leaked too far
Past the confines of the palace
Out to the public
About the wasteful practices of a dictator

Controversy didn’t mean anything
As words were accompanied by the rhythm
Of saber-rattling
There was no cause for anger
Or to perceive humor

At least one word was expunged
Just so many left to go
