TALBUKJA/SAETEOMIN(another green world

Soft South Korean voices from a clandestine radio
Defectors wishing only to eat .Corrupt Communist military dictatorship
existing via vi et armis.Propaganda the diet.Punishment Camps for dissidents.
Bordered by South Korea,Russia,China-all exploiting refugees
Censorship controlling all/violence suppressing dissent.
Time capsule of a Cold war Armistice that never evolved to peace
Kidnappings,bombings,artillery shots,shootings across borders.
DMZ is a dead zone.All the GOOGLES of this world cannot expose
conditions of poverty and starvation that have killed millions over time.
How do you hug a corpse?How make peace with war?
What bribery makes atomic weapons safe?Who takes the first step?
As always-it is civilians who suffer.Army eats American rice
and makes their people prisoners.Even crossing any border is no guarantee of freedom.
Unless and until North Koreans are welcomed and integrated
liberation remains coal in Xmas stockings.Stoicism fails.Release all North Koreans!
