Pompeo left north Korea empty handed while the Hermit Kingdom seemed to pull back
A sticky wicket as when it comes to trust and honesty the North clearly lacks
If Kim digs in his heels and refuses denuke
And China in a trade war with us refuses to the north rebuke
Our only option short of a preemptive strike
More sanctions as Kim may have told us to take a hike
As long as China and Russia with North Korea a border share
Our ability to block the flow of goods in or out will be somewhat ne’er
Will Pompeo return to the North to try once more
Or with comments of regrettable has Kim closed the denuke door?
What sounded so good in Singapore
May be dashed with nuclear tipped missiles soon able to reach out shores.
