*Sorry for the graphic, disturbing photo*

The war crimes in Ukraine Is a monstrosity It's the devil at work The piper must be paid A despot gone berserk The war crimes in Ukraine Is far beyond the pale What was Putin thinking? He miscalculated Troops he deployed, shrinking The war crimes in Ukraine Is watched the world over It's hard to look away Dead bodies on the ground; Soon they'll start to decay The war crimes in Ukraine Can be called genocide Awful truth came to light, Absolutely shocking Russia will lose this fight Form M - Monchielle - New Poetry Contest Sponsored by Constance La France Theme chosen: Death Syllables checked at HMS Date written: 04/06/2022

Well said, Edward. It's hard to watch the atrocities. I agree with your prediction--in many ways Russia has already lost. His end is near.
