Makeshift Rhetoric Mix

two schools of thought about rhetoric emanating shoring power
no worse than ritualistic promises testing leader resolve
formally repudiated armistice cut hotline latest round of sanctions

building under construction collapsed illegal and shoddy
often live in crude shacks at sites demolish it and they build
makeshift settlements enough time passes impossible to demolish

mystery wrapped in an enigma mix of incomprehension ridicule
          and fear
might be on the brink of tipping peninsula catastrophic
shaking their heads in bemusement lurid exhortations to his troops

-- Clark Allison
