Tête à Tête

The US Vice-President Mike Pence
said the Chief didn’t sit on the fence.
On the contrary, Donald did not duck
the issue and stood up to Kim Jong-un
when he told the North Korean leader
that there would be no concessions
unless denuclearisation was achieved.
Until now they’ve exchanged insults
instead of behaving like adults.
Both men were believed to be peeved
that no further progress could be made
but it’s claimed that Trump’s strategy
of isolating North Korea bore fruit
and a meeting will take place, it seems.
The news of a summit is stunning;
we’ll see who of the two is more cunning.
