Putin's Loss List

Errors on Putins bungled invasion are beginning to show As this obscene war progresses, his loss list will grow He thought rolling in his tanks, it would take but a day But the west is supporting Ukraine and will make him pay. The Ukrainians are proud people and will fight to the end And have sworn allegiance to their country and have vowed to defend From all walks of life they answered, the rallying call And unlike the murdering Russian army they stand proud and tall. Finland and Sweden are now joining NATO after seeing Ukraine They like all of us have seen reports, of the devastation and pain If he invades a NATO country he'll invoke article five And with NATOs firepower he'll be lucky to survive He's now backed into a corner and should admit defeat And start withdrawing his army and get them off the street Thousands are dead because of him , their blood is on his hands And all because the Ukrainian people didn't bow to his demands. There are no Nazis in Ukraine only the Russian army And that is plain as day, as all the civilised world can see Putin is soulless and dishonorable and suffers no guilt But one day will pay for his crimes and for Ukraine to be rebuilt.

How can the world take anything he says as being true - he has lost soldiers, his tanks, weapons and eventually will lose the war - hip hip hurray! Blessings, Jennifer.

Thank you Jennifer, he doesn't care for human life even his own soldiers using them as cannon fodder, they deserve what's coming to them, they're all scum and a disgrace to humanity. Tom

Thank you very much Michael, the world would be better off without the likes of Putin walking around, he doesn't care one bit for human life even his own soldiers he uses as fodder. Enjoy your weekend. Tom

To rebuild will take a fortune and the lives lost can never come back like they were. I don't understand his reasoning. I enjoyed reading your political work. Your visit to my page was encouraging. I have finished the poem, Orphan. Sara

Thank you very much Sara, the man is unhinged and is a war criminal. Tom

He is way too MANIACAL to do this "He's now backed into a corner and should admit defeat And start withdrawing his army and get them off the street" but he should!

Thank you Caren, I'm sure his generals and advisors are against what he's doing but too frightened to speak against him. Putin is unhinged for sure. Tom

Awesome poem Tom!! I wish that we would have stepped in a lot further than we have. It is just a shame that this is allowed to continue. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on such an important topic.

Thank you very much Mark, Putin is just flexing his muscles trying to show the world how tough he is, he didn't count on the civilised world helping Ukraine. He won't win this war that's for sure. Tom

Powerful poem from the heart, Tom, you have the facts on your fingertips, awesome:)

Thank you very much Jo, it makes my blood boil how Russians have conducted themselves in this conflict that they caused. So many unnecessary deaths, they have blood on their hands. Tom

Tom, all so true. I bet one day your poems will be taught in history texts. All the best~ Warren

Thank you very much Warren, Putin has lost more in three months than he did in nine years in Afghanistan and he still can't see that he's going to lose. Hope your weekend goes well. Tom

Your work (and reasearch) is seemingly tireless Tom, but passion and conscience is your tourch. Sweden and Finland are now waking up. I hope Ireland and Austria will support freedom as well. Best- Ken

Thank you very much Ken, seems Putins generals aren't giving him the true picture of his botched invasion, it's been a disaster from day one, it's him that's caused Sweden and Finland to apply for membership, he's made Nato larger, an own goal I think. Tom

Hi. Tom, I appreciate your efforts to make the people aware of what is happening in the war! With aid and support from many countries, hope Ukraine will be able to show its might ! In a war, unfortunately there are no winners, but only losers.... ! Hope this war comes to an immediate end....

Thank you very much Valsa, there doesn't seem to be any end in sight, but you're right there won't be any real winners and thousands have dies unnecessarily. Tom

I am with you all the way, my dearest friend, Tom. Congratulations on your fighting spirit. Be blessed!

Hi Tom, I echo what my fellow poets said. You are doing an excellent job writing about what’s going on in Ukraine. This war is so unfortunate, and it should have never happened in the first place-Alexis

Thank you Alexis, I agree, they were never a threat to Russia and by his actions has moved Finland and Sweden into joining NATO, an own goal for that war criminal Putin. Tom

Much evil has this monster concocted, but now some good will come out of it as NATO will grow stronger. Lovey poem.

Thank you Anaya, they saw what he's done to Ukraine and it was a wake up call for them. Tom

Brilliant work you do Tom in support of Ukraine and the wonderful democracy loving people who cherish freedom. Putin must not succeed and must be punished for crime on humanity. I share you views on this unjust war of brutality.

Thank you very much Vijay, you, me and the whole peace loving civilised world. I'm hopeful someone in the Kremlin will stand up to him and hand him over to stand trial for mass murder along with members of his scum army who committed atrocities. Tom

He'll get away with nothing the whole world is watching! Cheers Tom!

Thank you very much Robert, he's made the world a very unstable place and I think either his own take away his power or the west will do the work for them. Tom

Tom, this is an excellently written poem. You've done an outstanding job writing about Ukraine. Even while such statistics are extremely concerning, they represent the extent of devastation, bloodshed, and suffering inflicted on a sovereign country. Unfortunately, and according to the latest reports, he is planning a lengthy bloodbath war that might extend to include Finland, Denmark, and perhaps Switzerland.

Thank you very much Lasaad, Putin is out of control God only knows what he'll do next. Finland and Sweden have given up their neutrality because they fear he'll invade them. He can't be right in the head, hopefully some of his own will remove him before this war becomes global. Tom
Date: 5/11/2022 1:00:00 PM
Those figures speak for themselves Tom, and cannot be sustained indefinitely, it is becoming a stalemate, the west must keep supplying Ukraine, or they’ll go under, Putin must keep fighting, or he’ll go under, but on the literary front your poems are getting stronger and more defiant, and not going under, another fine write, cheers David

Thank you very much David, reading about what the Russians have done makes my blood boil. The only weapon I have is a pen and will keep calling them out. If Putin succeeds then it will open the doors for other physchopaths to chance their arm, Nth Korea, China and Iran come to mind. Tom

Thank you Lisa, If it helps to tell people what's happening over there then every word I write will have been worth it. Tom

Russians reportedly are gaining access to other-world news networks, so perhaps Russians will quickly tire of the daily scenes of devastation and find new leadership. The Japanese News reported Russian soldiers are clueless, with no sense of organisation, so the sooner it ends, the better for all! Keep at it, Tom! Aloha!

Thank you very much Rico also tv stations hacked that were showing the parade, they put on what's really happening there. Most of the soldiers are canon fodder just left school, the officers aren't any better. Tom
