Poetry – Putin and NATO

Putin and NATO

Fast on the trigger.

                Face off on Main Street

                                Eyes narrowed

                                                Quick on their feet.

Safe in their bunkers

                Button under thumb

                                One press of the finger

                                                Death for everyone.

Defender of the people

                Totalitarian control

                                Oppression reigns

                                                Secret police patrol.

Feigning democracy

                But the elite pull the strings

                                Western democracy

                                                With faceless kings.

World War Three

                Knocks at the door

                                One single twitch

                                                They’ll dispense with the poor.

Opher – 16.3.2022

If there is another nuclear holocaust you can bet that the wealthy elite will either be far away from the action or safe way underground.

Who will be incinerated?
