It is reported that North Korea has threatened to fire missiles over Japan to land in the sea near the US military bases in Guam by the middle of August and that Donald Trump has promised extreme retaliation.

Two overweight men with bad hair,
Determined to the whole world scare,
Keep making comments rather rash,
That they will each the other smash.

The young one’s done this all along,
(He lives in that place starts with ‘Pyong’)
It’s not clear why he makes his boast,
Which could end up with him as toast.

While he’s mad and perhaps insane,
I can’t see what he’s got to gain,
But threatening to attack that isle,
Is certain Donald Trump to rile.

Now Trump we know is so thin-skinned,
That he threatens that fire and wind,
Will come down on folk fat or thin,
When any person crosses him.

The misdemeanour may be slight,
But even so Trump gets uptight,
And several people have been fired,
Including ones he himself hired.

So if someone should threaten war –
A threat he hasn’t had before –
Because a war is not so nice,
You would expect he’d take advice.

But we know that is not Trump’s way,
And so he pronounced yesterday,
That fire and fury’s not enough,
So now he would get really tough;
He thought a bit and then he said,
“There would be big trouble instead.”

When asked what that meant, should folk flee?
He said, “Just wait. You’ll see. You’ll see.”
Which really means without much doubt,
He hasn’t quite yet worked it out.

So we must wait with bated breath,
To see if this fight’s to the death,
Or if his tweets show that he’s brave,
And Twitter can the planet save.


Tins of food

The German Government has said,
People not wanting to be dead,
Should take precautions in their house,
As also should the person’s spouse.

The situation’s getting grim,
And though the chances may be slim,
There may one day be an attack,
So we must not precautions lack.

We can’t say who will lead the charge,
If it will come by land or barge,
It could be big, it could be small,
Or maybe no attack at all.

But we must surely all prepare,
Of everyone we should beware,
And people should across the land,
Stock up with food that’s dried or canned,
So if the worst comes to the worst,
We can have pasta with our wurst.

This food will not exciting be,
But if you’re thinking now like me,
That people might soon of it tire,
Our normal food is pretty dire!
