The Art of the Nuclear Deal

by Chris O’Carroll

Though they tortured our guy in their prison,
Kim has said he knew nothing about it.
Ever since our first beautiful summit,
I’m in love with him, so I don’t doubt it.

I believe in the Prince and in Putin
When they say to me strongly, sincerely
That they’re not into bone saws and hacking.
They’re tough leaders and I love them dearly.

By canoodling with Kim for the cameras,
I have proved I should win the Nobel.
He’s still got his nuclear weapons,
But believe me, the deal’s going well.
