US President Donald Trump tweeted his thanks to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Thursday, after the possible remains of American war dead killed in the Korean War arrived back on US soil.—CNN

Thank you, Chairman Kim Jong Un,
For keeping of your word:
I like you more than Good Night Moon,
Whatever you have heard.
I’m not at all surprised you took
This action nice and kind;
And let me add how thin you look
When photo’d from behind.
We’re thrilled you’re sending back our dead:
We’re sure beneath each lid
We won’t find something else instead,
The way the British did.
Your letter, too, was kind and nice.
I hope to see you soon
And treat you to an Egg McRice,
Dear Chairman Kim Jong Un.
