Ukraine

As a mentally unstable autocrat run amok

As children die and others flee

As pain builds and as some lose hope

How many humans are able to hang their heads in shame?

As the communist in the East stand by as the defenseless who die

As the religious autocrat nearby seeks bribes to stay silent

As the less privileged in Africa and Latin America stay close

How many humans are able to hang their heads in shame?

As they advance to kill and pillage the innocent

As the kids cry and as the tears fall on the heated caldron

As the column of archaic defense equipment advance to destroy

How many humans are able to hang their heads in shame?

As countries bifurcate in policy, aided by autocratic leaders

As the leaders of apparent democracies pretend to care

As the brave converge on the location of crime to help

How many humans are able to hang their heads in shame?

Are there any humans left on the planet?

If there are, could you look into the eyes of those who are dying?

Are you for real? or just a pretense?

Are you able to hang your heads in shame?
