The White House has released a series of five cards to commemorate the soon-to-be-scheduled follow-up summit with Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, the Supreme Leader of North Korea.
After the first photo-opp...er, summit...Trump said, "I was really being tough and so was he,and we would go back and forth. And then we fell in love. No really. He wrote me beautiful letters. And they are great letters. We fell in love."
The US State Department has requested that the two leaders meet in Paris on Valentine's Day, because "nothing could be more romantic," said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
"Donnie and Kim are really in love," added Pompeo, "and I really think we can leverage their relationship for some real progress in talks about denuclearization."
Below: The Trump administration's set of five commemorative cards to mark the upcoming summit with North Korea. Trump and Pompeo are hoping the meeting will take place on Valentine's Day. The theme of the meeting is "Reunited And It Feels So Good."
The actual date for the second photo-opp...er summit...has not been set. We hear, though, that Trump has started shopping around for keepsakes to present Kim Jong Un to commemorate their second date.
The entire sham...er, event...calls to mind Emmett Lee Dickinson's poem "Because he loves him" (below on the left). Dickinson's poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "Because He loves Her" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
Because he loves him
He will try to see if he is true
When difference is on his Face
That Feigns he’ll follow through.
He won’t disarm at any pace
If we stay far ahead –
The Differences necessitate
That Flummery’s all that’s Said
He’s hoping that we’ll notice now
He’s nearer to adore
'Tis Sad though their deficiencies
Will stand out even more.
By Emily Dickinson:
Because He loves Her
We will pry and see if she is fair
What difference is on her Face
From Features others wear.
It will not harm her magic pace
That we so far behind --
Her Distances propitiate
As Forests touch the Wind
Not hoping for his notice vast
But nearer to adore
'Tis Glory's far sufficiency
That makes our trying poor.
