War – Letter to the Editor

Putin’s War

Putin’s war
It is and will forever be
Strange how one man’s folly
Could lead to so much destruction
And so many losses of lives
The death of soldiers on both sides
Not to mention the innocent Ukrainian civilians
Men, women and most tragic of all children

Welcome Vladimir
To the halls of infamy
Where you will join the likes of your comrade
Italy’s Mussolini
And of course, that one man whom we abhor most of all
Fear not
You may yet top them all
With your threats of a nuclear war!
I wonder
If there’s a shred of humanity
Still left in you.


Live and let live
Is a motto someone like you will never understand
You are nothing but a bully and a tyrant
And like all tyrants headed for an ignoble end.
