Inspired by a true Ukraine story.

The Devil Incarnate Sends His Shit

How withered are the hearts
that brought this poison to our lives?

"I ask you sister why you say
that this war is so unjust?
We are freeing you from slavery
and a fascist dictatorship."

"Sister dear, wou are so wrong!
You are killing people like me -
your loving sister born of the same blood.
I am free. Not chained by fascism!"

"Why do you say these lies, Sister?
You do not realise that Putin is
a saving wonderful godlike man!
I cannot believe you would say these things!"

How putrid are the mouths of those
who spread such evil misinformation?

"Sister, you have just broken my heart.
It can never be repaired. Now a child
with cancer has been shot by Putin's
rancid greed for even more power!
I must go now from this land, with nothing,
no home, no money, no love,
and now, no sister!
You are dead to me!"

Sitting in such oppulance, at the head
of an obscenely long table,
The devil incarnate sends shit -
into air, into ears, into blood,
and somehow believes his own lies
for he sleeps at night, while a
nation writhes in glorious agonay.

to me, this sums up so much about this terrible war, where the violence is also in the words that come out of corrupt mouths to deceive the na´ve. Bravo!

I believe he's trying to live up to his heroes.
Anyone who says Putin's not a monster,
Shame on them. For all of us that can help
But don't shame on us.
