North Korean Tale

Vintage Words


Tell me the story of a student

in Korea. Fifteen years hard labor

is poor substitute for graduation

a year away. What were you doing so

far North, Otto?


Supreme Court convicted and twenty-one,

Mr Warmbier; your life had just begun.

Studyhall and late night reading marathons

are an interesting history lesson atop

an avoidable tragic legacy. What idiot

suggested this year that you fan flames

in North Korea?


Otto, you can tell me the story about

your choice to become a martyr to start

a war. Sign theft became prison. You,

dearest sir, should be at college kissing

women. There was an entire world to

chose to visit, Mr. Warmbier. Why did you

not go South?
