Poem


Ukraine June 29th 2022

Beyond the solstice there came no better truth
Just the mangled wreckage of a fallen roof
In Kremenchuk’s Amora shopping centre
Bright lives doused by a cruel tormentor… who grunts
“There are no threats to the civilian population”.

Beyond the borders in faraway lands
Ephemeral politicians wring their hands
As newspapers shift their spotlights elsewhere
If you want a disaster we’ve got one to spare
“There are no threats to the civilian population”.

Beyond the concept of imagination
The subjugation of a once proud nation
Putin studies the reflection of his face
A "Wanted" poster for this human race… and smirks
“There are no threats to the civilian population”.

  1. I wondered how he manages to sleep at night, but he has no conscience, no heart, no soul worth saving, that's how. Every day, I hope he has a fatal heart attack.

    1. Is he a robot? Robots don't feel anything. He has killed babies.

  2. Yeah, not bad at all. What is Putin's end game?

    1. Makes you wonder if there was a vision of the end game when they invaded Ukraine. Perhaps he and his cronies are just making it up as they go along.

    2. His end game is Europe. He wants Europe under Russian rule, and if he gets Ukraine he will move on to the next target. We simply can't allow that to happen.

  3. I wonder how much (if anything) of what he says he actually believes. Same is true for other well-known politicians (ex and current) who have a... let's say peculiar relationship with truth.

    1. Me too. Why can't we just work together on this tiny ball spinning in the vastness of Space?

  5. Putin is evil, an evil piece of shit. He has convinced me that evil exists in the world in a way that nobody else has.

    1. Russia is just part of The Earth and we are all earthlings. We should be working together but Putin has but a huge spanner in that idea. He is a baby killer and you cannot get much lower than that.
