as millions fled the land

Russian dance

corridor full of refugees

mercy peace we stand

as they prance

losses of lives please rescue me

civilians and staff

brotherhood

was to celebrate unity

now not able to laugh

as we stood

war unconstitutionally

how long will this war last?

track and crack

and don’t target the innocents

hear music with the blast

basement black

prayer for all and dissidents*
