A POEM FOR NORTH KOREA. WELL...TWO POEMS, ACTUALLY.

The world has been in a heightened state of anxiety since Kim Jong Il and his North Korean regime successfully tested a nuclear weapon last weekend.

And from far and wide, the good people of planet Earth are begging for just one thing.

No, no, no...not COCONUT! *I’m* the only one begging for that.

Rather, the good people of planet Earth are begging for...silly poems about North Korea!

Fortunately, I—in my official capacity as Minister of Silly Poems—published a few of them on this VTB on April 1, 2005.

So, do your frazzled nerves a favor and click HERE.

C’mon...go ahead! If you can’t laugh in the face of armageddon, then when can you laugh?

That is some inspired political commentary!

All I have to say is Kim Jong Il better not screw up my plans for international travel in a MONTH! Yay! It's all I can do to keep from packing right now. What kind of American goodies shall I bring my expat blogger fried? (Coconut, I presume.) Shane is planning to pack the night before... apparently fashion isn't his highest priority, but I already knew this, since his wardrobe is about 50 polo shirts and 4 pairs of khaki cargo pants.

Tell your hija that she has a good hand for makeup! Is she available for weddings?

Ang: The Dear Leader would never mess with Spain. I suspect that he has a stong fondness for our wines.

As for your imminent arrival, you need bring nothing but yourself, your fiance and your Moleskine.

Shane is a khaki cargo pants guy? Well, I'm partial to Levi's 501's myself...but I'll overlook it just this once.

PS: Thanks for mentioning "COCONUT" in your comment. It's important to continue the mantra.
