Mr. Kim had also prepared a blues number for his poem

Mr. Trump’s taking over diplomacy with North Korea has brought renewed condemnation from mainstream Democrats and the MSM.

At issue is Mr. Kim’s recent reluctance to proceed further with denuclearization, currently assessed by The Washington Post as “intransigent and not cooperating.”

Alternatively, the Bolton-Pompeo stance is: “First, give us everything we want. Next, we’ll (maybe) think about giving you something.”

Analysts argue Mr. Kim composed a poem response to the Bolton-Pompeo position, which he then delivered to Mr. Trump.

Yesterday, Mr. Trump arrived with Melania at the DMZ in a stretch-humvee. Smiling and rubbing his hands, the President immediately loosed his baritone into a classic from Crosby, Stills, Nash:

“Now witness, the quickness, with which we get along . . .
Carry on! Carry on! Love is coming, love is coming to us all . . .”

However, after bulgogi, world diplomats were startled (plus US military placed on high alert) when Mr. Kim delivered a specially crafted poem titled, "Stopping by your viewpoint on a snowy evening."

The poem included: “With appreciation to Mr. Robert Frost as inspiration.”

The poem was featured on a large lighted screen as well as read by Mr. Kim in excellent English.

The poem:

Whose ways these are I think I know
White House or State it’s always so

I hope they will not think it queer
To hear our plans for North Korea

These plans are lovely, dark, and deep
Not stupid ideas for mission creep

As to whack jobs Bolton and Pompeo
They belong to another day-o

We believe we’re a sovereign nation
Not next in line as a regime change station

And when I give my head a shake
We won’t bow down for you to take

Whatever you please to feed your system
Leaving us feeling we’ve been pissed on

So take your troops, your view, your satisfaction
It will not work, there is no traction

The peace you supposedly agreed to pursue
Has vanished into a militarist’s brew

This country is lovely, dark, and deep
Our sovereignty we plan to keep!

Mr. Trump was leaning back, smiling, with hands raised to applaud, until Melania leaned into his ear.

At this point Mr. Trump rose and threw down his napkin, saying, “Very well, but once again we’d better walk!”

Mr. Bolton and Mr. Pompeo then released a joint statement:

“Despite all our kindness and work for peace, North Korea has once again shown it only understands force. We’re happy to oblige.”
