THE UKRAINIAN'S LAMENT
We are at the mercy of a man who knows no mercy
We are at the mercy of a man whose hubris knows no bound
A man who wants to stand on top
The bodies of innocents strewn around him on the ground.
A man whose greed and lust for power have no limit
A man who wants his empire back
A man prepared to rain fire and destruction on the world
The innocents cry and bleed as our cities he continues to sack.
We ask the world for a no-fly zone
Yet we may as well be asking the birds
The man’s bombs and missiles destroy our life
As the rest of the world attack this man with stern words.
And yet we will never surrender
When the bullets run out, we will fight with stones
Please remember what you saw here
While you all watched us on your phones.
