Heroes in Ukraine

Heroes in Ukraine No heat, no power endure aerial bombardment More brutal by the day Hundreds of Russian conscripts thrown into battle every day Unprepared, they die like flies As if Vladimir Putin cares While informed Americans stuff down turkey watching sacred football games Taking stock of their carbon emissions So Donald Trump they can blame

Well, not much fit to print in the 'news' today, it seems. Just endless misery... Thanks, Ann

Yes, we go about our business with a terrible war, protests in Iran, China, and Russia, people starving--real life has become almost too hard to bear. Thank you for reminding us to think of others.

'Real life' too much taken up with death these days, I'm afraid. ~ gw

Gershon, I like your poem. You have great lines about the war. And yes, on Thanksgiving we feast, while others are dying.

What the country was! What the little little man wants to have… and why in the world many people have a trump obsession. The mouth runs with hate. Prayers that love will be stoked in the heart…the mouth filled with merry and nice. God bless you, Gershon!

The Ukrainians are so brave and honorable, fighting for their land! Putin might as well be called Killer Rasputin, but hey, he'll soon be stiff as a board and gone... while the balding, biggest liar, cheap bastard Trump, heck; he's got two giant triple cheeseburgers and a bucket of fries in one hand! The Corrupt Greedy Freddies!!...ab

I am happy to read your optimism that Putin will soon be gone. Myself, I think that a cat has nine lives. We'll see what happens. ~ gw

It's about time there was another Russian revolution and that dog kicked out of power. Why is he allowed to get away with war crimes against humanity??????? I salute the bravery of the Ukrainian people standing up to that physchopath. Tom

Failing another Russian Revolution, how about another Ronald Reagan to emerge in the West, someone with the guts and gumption to stand up to the naysayers in his country, and then to go after RasPUTIN?! Thanks, Tom
