Gas chambers next
Is that the final solution?
Putin is thinking of
It’s a situation I cannot
Stop thinking about
The children
Will if they survive
They will never forgive
I don’t blame them
It’s unforgivable

Yelena Osipova

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy
It would be a mistake to meet with Putin
He will have you murdered
The past has shown this many times
Please don’t meet him he is a liar and a murderer

Guilty as Charged

I’m guilty as charged
Yes I am
I paid some attention to all the wars
But I have not done enough
I admit it
I have seen war here and there
On TV in newspapers
I watched and shook my head
Dismay horror and helplessness
WWII was a thing we had to
Study at school
My father’s war
WWI was my grandfather’s war
I knew about that from his
Shining medals
Korea passed me by
Vietnam I watched the children burning
Then to now a myriad of war
Mostly in the Middle East or
Africa.
They seemed tribal and distant
I saw them on the news
Tyrannical men controlling
The masses
Lording over them with terror
Keeping them small and scared
Then the bombing
Suicide cruel and secret
Taking out lives of children
Wedding guests train passengers.
Bus passengers
Concert goers
Then again death from the air

Libya. Kuwait Iraq Israel Syria
Lebanon Serbia Iran Egypt Jordan
Afghanistan Malaya Kurdistan
Cuba Sudan Ethiopia Czechoslovakia
Uganda Rhodesia N Ireland
The Falklands Sierra Leone Croatia
Bosnia Yemen Cambodia
Taliban insurgency
Operation Enduring Freedom
War on Terror
The list of horror
A list of atrocities
Never ending
I’m bending under the thought of it all

It was one of the most decisive battles of the war so far – a ferocious two-day struggle for control of the farming town of Voznesensk and its strategically important bridge.

Victory would have enabled Russian forces to sweep further west along the Black Sea coast towards the huge port of Odesa and a major nuclear power plant.

Instead, Ukrainian troops, supported by an eclectic army of local volunteers, delivered a crushing blow to Russian plans, first by blowing up the bridge and then by driving the invading army back, up to 100km, to the east.

“It’s hard to explain how we did it. It’s thanks to the fighting spirit of our local people and to the Ukrainian army,” said Voznesensk’s 32-year-old mayor, Yevheni Velichko, standing in body armour with his guards outside the town hall.

But almost three weeks after that battle, the mayor warned that another attack by Russian forces was probably imminent and that the town’s defenders lacked the weapons to hold them off a second time.
