Putin, Hear Me!!!

gentle rain please wash
these tears from my eyes
saddened by human condition
and all it grossly implies.

naked aggression everywhere
in the ruins of its wake
makings of an individual man
with a blood lust to slake.

by watching it on T.V.
I will not promote this
violence so senseless
by a man who shakes his fist.

despised dictator, destroyer,
put him in the line at the front.
take away his weapon to kill
make it real for him, no stunt.

I want to see you in the action
see the color of your blood
I want to see you fallen
face down in the mud.

maybe then you'll understand
that every life has a price
not to be thrown away
with the rolling of the dice.

Excellent poem and I agree sadly with every word

his plans were in the works when he visited trump. they discussed them and trump didn't object. that was as good as Putin needed for a go ahead and do it. what is next? heavy sanctions aren't enough of an answer. I am sad and worried. thanks for reading and your message.

*hugs, Cat & eddy
