Blood Red Letter Day

Red letters across Russia
Everywhere a Z
For Putin's celebration
In Ukraine marked with dead
It's Victory Day in Moscow
A cynical parade
Of guns and tanks and missiles
His tools of war displayed
Up upon a balcony
Outside the Kremlin wall
Lining up with generals
A tyrant standing small
Nazi filth, he labels,
Those who thwart his aims
Battered yet unbeaten
In cities left in flames
His poor, deluded people
Once conquered Hitler's might
Yet they turn out sheep-like
And fail to see the light
Thousands more have now joined
Immortal Regiment
Dishonour just the legacy
For those to death he sent
The world had hoped for no more war
In 1945
But Putin threatens nuclear
And who would then survive?
