On Megumi Yokota: Doggerel One

Leave a comment
Japan / North Korea-Japan relations
Japan is hatin’ on DPRK
Koizumi’s plume done led the way
When Kim abducted you say?
The DPRK gotta send Megumi home.//
//But they said she killed herself in a fit of despair
Her parents want ashes, yet Kim forswear
Apologies and memories mingle up with force
Like a mini-submarine rising off the Niigata coast//
//KCNA drops bombs while J-pop drops beats oblivious
Tumescent and lugubrious, the peasants plant peat
outside the port of Wonson, where ships await
trawlers, refugees returning from Manchurian food forays
