They have No Drone Zones in Moscow,
Paranoia turned upside down,
Cheap firework bursts over Kremlin,
Claim it was attack on Putin.
Low grade propaganda display,
Designed to discredit Ukraine.
Russian people esteemed lowly,
State media takes them for rides,
Of course they know but dare not say
For fear of being shot in street.
It’s about justification
As wearisome war is ramped up.
Who knows what macho maniac
Scheme is planned next for Kyiv,
Whatever his generals do
Folks die in this puppet theatre.
Futility demeans us all
It’s time we saw some princes fall.
