Russian TV Hacked! The Truth is exposed!!

Every channel – Just listen!! The Headlines on news sites!

Putin’s propaganda and control of the media is undermined. Th hacker tells them the truth about the war.

Poetry – War Crimes

War Crimes

Bombing hospitals, schools and power stations,

Executing civilians,

Blowing up women and babies

The evil stench of war

With no holds barred

Spreads like a nasty dose of rabies.

This is not war!

These are war crimes!

Targeting houses and civilians

Threatening nuclear holocaust

To intervening nations

With costs soaring into trillions.

As obscene as it is absurd

To resort to such barbarity

At one man’s behest.

Putin ignores the wrath of the world,

Arrogantly striking out

With no crimes confessed.

Ultimately we need the courts

To hold all perpetrators to account,

To bring them to the justices.

But will the brainwashed Russian people

Wake up to reality

And hand over Putin and his accomplices?

Opher – 5.5.2022

This is where bodies like the United Nations need to live up to their lofty ideals and step in. This is where all nations need to be united to condemn any nations that use war to invade sovereign states. This is when the targeting of hospitals, schools and civilians need to be called out for what they are – WAR CRIMES!!

It is a disgrace that, for political reasons, many nations are refusing to stand up for justice and human rights, are refusing to condemn aggression and violence and are condoning this evil perpetuation of WAR CRIMES!

No matter where in the world, or by whom, all perpetrators of WAR CRIMES need to be dragged before the courts and properly punished.

I would love to see the day when Putin and his loathsome warmongers are handed over by the Russian people and tried before international courts.

The same should be true for all those guilty in Syria, Yemen, Eritrea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Somalia and the rest.

It’s time the UN had the power to intercede.

Poetry – What is it that Russia wants?

I wrote this two years ago before the Ukraine war. Trump and Johnson were both sucking up to Putin. The Russians were instrumental in getting Brexit done and electing Trump and Johnson – big funders of them and their campaigns.

What is it that Russia wants?

To divide and conquer

That is the simple plan.

Pumping out the cyber.

Doing all they can.

They want the USA divided

And Europe split apart.

Populist leaders

Who haven’t any heart.

They don’t need

To go to war.

Targetting views

Into the homes of the poor.

Spreading rumours

And conspiracy.

In some modern-day


A wedge between allies

Suspicion into minds.

Deep State is after you,

Break the ties that bind.

To divide and conquer

That is the simple plan.

Pumping out the cyber.

Doing all they can.


So who’s been sucking up to Putin and has all manner of dodgy deals in Russia??

Russia, under Putin, desperately wants to disrupt and undermine the West. He’s doing a good job of it too.

He’s been interfering in elections, sending out conspiracy theories and fake news and generally confusing everyone.

It’s all part of his plan.

Trump’s his ace card.

Mariupol – A symbol of what is WRONG!!

Instead of trying to build a better world and solve the massive problems facing us (climate change, biodiversity, mass migration, poverty, inequality, overpopulation ………..) we have madmen spending trillions destroying cities and slaughtering innocent people!!

As a species we are utterly insane!! We put these psychotic fools in charge of us!!

We won’t forget!! This is the 21st Century!! They are behaving like crazed barbarians!!

Poetry – Bogged Down in Death

Bogged Down in Death

Bogged down in the mud –

                Targets for the taking.

Mutinous and exhausted

                Morale through the floor.

Witnessing horror.

                Souls aching. Innocents quaking.

They can’t take it anymore.

Blunted by terror,

                By what their eyes have seen,

They are mindless

                Killing machines.

Bodies litter streets

                Mass graves and executions,

Without hope, as in a dream, totally obscene.

Looting and pillaging,

                Raping and killing,

Insane with propaganda.

                No fear of prosecution,

Expecting death.

                No longer fighting for anything grander. 

Empty vessels drawing breath.

Colossal losses,

                Capricious missiles,

Carnage beyond imagination.

                Seeking fascism in the wrong place,

Driving democracy out

                From an entire nation.

The dance of death’s own disgrace.

Opher – 2.5.2022

As with most wars, it starts with expectations of a swift conclusion but ends in the reality of long-drawn-out attrition.

Propaganda steals minds.

Soldiers witness the horrors of seeing friends maimed and blown to pieces beside them. There is no skill – only luck. Living in the shadow of constant terror the mind becomes numb.

When the opportunity presents itself they seek revenge, an outlet, an orgy of release. They execute, rape, torture and exert their power. It’s all they have. They have ceased to be human. They are immune to conscience.

All that exists is death.

There is no end in sight, no escape – just more of the same until the orders are given or the bullet strikes.

Who is to blame? It’s always the ones safe in the bunkers giving out the orders.

Poetry – The Brigands

The Brigands

The brigands charged down the hill,

Swords raised,

With chilling battle cries,

Thundering hooves.

Callously and gleefully they butchered men, women and children,

Set fire to huts,

Raped, tortured and looted.

But those were the days of long ago.

Nothing changes.

Except, now they use drones

And ‘peace keepers’.

Opher – 12.7.2020

Once upon a time we built walls around our cities and had fortified castles; we raised armies and kept constant watch.

What a way to spend your life – in fear of brigands.

They’d sweep down with their armies, killing, torturing, looting and raping.

Nowadays we’re much more sophisticated. We do it from afar.

Poetry – A Big Black Cloud

A Big Black Cloud

There was a big black cloud

                In the deep blue sky.

One moment sunshine

                Then wondering why.

We were shopping,

                Eating meals,

                                Laughing and planning

                                                Trips to the cinema.

Tanks rolled down the streets

                With bullets

                                Shells and missiles

                                                A howling, satanic choir.

No more normal.

                Ordinary forever gone.

After the days of terror

                Life is always wrong.

Opher – 5.4.2022

In this day and age it is hard to imagine the barbarity of war coming out of the blue.

This is Europe in 2022!

It’s barbaric.

I do not believe that the Ukrainian people really believed it would happen. One minute they were living normal lives in modern cities and the next they were hiding in cellars as the Russians turned their cities to rubble.

Poetry – Putin’s Dust

Putin’s Dust

Bedding to ashes

                Houses to dust

Sure and certain

                Cities resurrected

Traumatised people

                Suffer eternally.

Pounded to rubble

                Killed to be saved

Liberators in khaki

                Dispensers’ of death

Following orders

                Mindless madness.

Committed to the ground

                Flesh to earth


                To pulp

Grandiose plans

                Paranoia and power.

Curtains to ashes

                Children to dust

Futures to earth

                Hope to rust!

Dreams dissolved

                Horrors unleashed.

Time does not heal!

                Time does not heal!

                                Time does not heal!

Time just moves on.

                It moves on

                                And takes the stains with it.

Opher – 31.3.2022

War traumatises all who come into contact with it. It traumatises. It breaks minds. It ruins lives

The jigsaw puzzles cannot be put back together.

Minds are broken, damaged.

There is a stain that lasts forever.

It damages the victors as much as the victims.

Putin will suffer.

Is this why we put psychopaths in charge? Because they have no feelings for the suffering they instigate?

Is this why we elect sociopaths because they enjoy inflicting pain?

Are these leaders human?

Do they not become disturbed by the death and suffering they unleash?

Cities are rebuilt but the stains remain.

People cannot be rebuilt. The survivors are often the unlucky ones.

Part of them is forever destroyed.


Nothing can ever be normal again.

Poetry – Missiles and Bombs

Missiles and Bombs

Missiles and bombs

                Falling like rain

Soaking the cities           

                Dissolving to dust.

Soldiers and death

                Filling the graves.

Emptying homes

                Mocking the just.


                Upping the ante.

No end in sight.


And terror

An endless fight.

Saving face??

                No way out!

Existential threat?

                Brutal lout.

Opher – 23.3.2022

The Ukraine war is not going the way Putin had hoped. The liberator from the Nazi regime finds himself a fascist invader and figure of hate.

What was going to be a simple take-over has proved to be anything but. Instead of an incisive thrust Russia is in an existential crisis.

Nothing has gone to plan.

Death and destruction. We’re into a long war of contrition.

Putin is the rat trapped in the corner.
