Hermit Kingdom

You pay a price for self-reliance.

You dice with deaths from treatable causes,

but famines cover the expense of defence.

I’m starving for my arsenal,

surviving in poverty.

I’m isolation,

preservation,

a foreign policy destroying dreams.

I’m like North Korea with no self-esteem.
