a poem

Ah Putin,

ya shoulda done some more computing,

before ya sent your troops a shooting.

Perhaps then they wouldn’t be a looting,

dumping equipment and substituting,

their tanks for feet and food troubleshooting.

I guess it’s easy to be all highfalutin,

when you’ve the power to be executing.

Twisting narratives and truth diluting

using your nation for prostituting,

with personal gains from war prosecuting.

All the while Ukraine’s recruiting,

in every way they are refuting;

your whims and wishes and parachuting,

your soldiers are dead or are a routing,

your economy’s destroyed there’s no refuting.

Ah Putin,

I wish your rule to be a muting.

That means your death, or at least a booting,

from tzar to the grave, a desirable transmuting,

the only way to get to a future worth rooting.
