Blood Korea

by Mike Yim

Remember the country that never went imperial?
That one that suffered through an evil alchemy,
The coerced mixing of blood?
Well, that bad blood erupted
And dyed a part in red.
Bloody calls for revenge you hear
In the news.

It is cut into twowhich is actually a mutilation.
Take a plane, see the numerous fragments?
My grandmother cries;
I don’t know my uncle.
Is he a comrade?
Our deep roots rot to be forgotten.
Nevertheless, bloody head keeps ringing a gong,
Calling a nuke.

Number one in jumping off buildings.
The blanket noose is never too loose.
Always nose bleeding scholars
Want freedom, and many fly.
