When everything goes status quo
and you’re no longer “relevant,”
and people go about their lives
and think you insignificant,
so you decide to start a war
bring guns and planes, and armament
a force of will on full display
between despot and president.
We watch from half a world away
anticipating what comes next.
What will come of this dispute?
What catastrophic end of day?
Our politicians posturing,
to minimize and underplay.
Shall we stand or do we flee?
What advantage will be gained?
I’ll side with democracy
and I for one stand with Ukraine
