Ukrainian Daze ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

… by Timothy Price

David Redpath at gave me the idea to make Ukrainian Daze. The morning wonder at sunrise Sliver moon hanging over a clearโ€ฆ

Ukrainian Daze

It would seem that the free West
has been left in a general malaise
over Putin’s War of Aggression.
Inaction resulting in a Ukrainian daze.

    1. Appreciated, Brian ๐Ÿ™
      I was just then writing a poem
      on that very subject . . .

      crows are now gathering
      at the sports stadium
      on the far side of town
      where children are dying
      and the vultures are singing
      in Dolby Digital
      Surrounding Soundโ’ธ
      as the peacocks dance
      in a Technicolourโ“‡ trance
      up on the big screen
      in celebration
      of the maelstrom to come
      predators now jostling
      for a prime position
      as spectators queue
      for a ringside view
      It’s just another
      blood soaked season
      of dรฉjร  vu all over again

      1. Very good. Sad but good. In French we would say: “Et M…de. รงa recommence…”. It’s what my grandfather (WWI) must have said when the Nazis arrived in Brittany in 1940…

      2. Being a wild colonial boy, my
        grandfather was Australian.
        The Americans didn’t join in
        till 1917. As my granddad
        would’ve said, “Those Yanks
        are always running late!” ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      3. Oh. Awstrailian. Fought well. You and the Canadians. We could use all the help we could get… ๐Ÿ˜‰
        And your grandad couldn’t have said it better. If I recall, the Kaiser sank the Lusitania, otherwise we might still be waiting… ๐Ÿ˜‰
        So you’re in Down Under?

  1. My mind is blown. My heart is shattered. Surely, surely, CERTAINLY we, as a species, are growing beyond this profoundly stupid, horrid behavior. I have to believe it. We MUST be. God. No one I know can believe this is happening. I was skyping with a friend today who lives in a neighbouring country. They are preparing for the worst. The schools are stockpiling iodine to give to the young children in the event of chemical warfare. My friend is shockingly calm. She’s volunteering for the Red Cross. Taking care of her family and 3 kids. Watching the news in fits and starts just to stay aware. It’s astounding. Absolutely horrific. Sigh. Anything I say feels stupid and so very tiny. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ


    1. We do all share the same DNA, as
      Bono might say, but Vladimir Putin
      must be an alien mutation ๐Ÿ‘ฝ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
      to inflict such a vile crime against
      Despite all the evidence to the
      contrary, I have faith that Putin
      will lose in the long run, Katy ๐Ÿ™
      Yes, that Kremlin goblin Putin,
      the KGB/FSB gangster criminal,
      has the free world bluffed, and
      tied up in a nuclear conundrum
      of inaction. I’m ever on the side
      of peace โ˜ฎ๏ธ but once before the
      free world got it right in fighting
      against the tyranny of Adolf Hitler.
      Without some real help, sadly, the
      Ukraine has no hope of a future.
      You should check out what Putin’s
      thugs have been doing in Crimea.
      From the start of Putin’s public
      career (after leaving the KGB) he
      was ordering the murder of anyone
      who stood in his way. Politicians,
      journalists, former colleagues who
      knew too much … the list goes on.
      The West, and it’s financial
      institutions, should never have
      done business with such a ruthless
      tyrant.The world isn’t changing, it’s
      just rearranging, as pure evil ever
      remains the same.

      1. Yeah…..You’re preaching to the choir, my friend. I well understand his level of evil. He’s cut from the same cloth as Hitler and definitely needs to be stopped. IMMEDIATELY. I understand completely. I also am well aware of the corruption in journalism and governments….my own included. It’s astounding, maddening, frustrating beyond belief and absolutely heartbreaking.
