San Diego− Fire and Pain

In the Voice of Donald Trump” (with apologies to James Taylor)

Just yesterday morning, I learned you miniaturized.
Kim-Jong, I will put an end to you.
Are you taunting me because my hands are undersized?
Well you should know I’m as reckless too!

You’ll see fire and you’ll feel pain.
I’ll wreak havoc like the world has never seen.
The Koreas will be barren and never green.

And we’ll win despite the millions slain.

Won’t you look down upon me, Truman!

Isn’t this like you and Japan?
Ending wars or starting wars is just the same.
My poll numbers are low, and, it’s my only plan.

To me it’s all a macho game.

You’ll see fire and you’ll feel pain.
I’ll wreak havoc like the world has never seen.
The Koreas will be ashes and never green.
And we’ll win despite the millions slain.
