Putin’s genocide, I dare say.
The despicable abomination and dastardly horror of it all.
Right before our eyes, the vicious and surreal barbaric scenes jolt our
consciousness with shock and awe.
Death and destruction mercilessly rain down on people like you and me.
The visceral images of catastrophic wreckage and death, leaving
a grizzly wasteland with ominous clouds of lethal destruction.
The diabolical harbinger of death has remorselessly unleashed
his terrifying armageddon, without regard for life and property.
Still, the brave patriots fight to the death, defending their motherland.
The innocent young and the too old and sick to fight, hide in shelters,
hoping to live another day.
Ukraine bleeds from the pounding of Russia’s hell-fire, emboldening
Putin’s savagery to annihilate anyone who resists his plundering.
The world watches with bated breaths, unable to intervene, as villages
and cities and even humans are blown to oblivion.
The stench of death and desolation fills the air and the knowledge that
life here will never be the same.
Is this really happening in our lifetime where human life has no value or merits?
No! No! this cannot be – human life is too precious and sacred…blessed with
intelligence, compassion, and civilized discernment.
Surely we must be better than this unless madness and ignorance blind our rationality and judgment. Are we not our brother’s keepers?
The callous tyrant, armed to the teeth, holds the world hostage to his insanity.
The mighty powers cower, offering impotent band-aid solutions.
Putin is unmoved and will not be deterred, his mammoth nuclear arsenal warns of doomsday to anyone who intervenes.
Ukraine’s fearless men and women are no match for Putin’s despotic lunacy.
Mutilated, and crippled with devastation and grief all around them, they muster the
courage to stand their ground and bury their dead heroes with pious dignity.
Putin’s atrocities and genocide will forever live to show the world what humans are capable of when they become unhinged with unlimited power.
How will this end, only God knows? Let us all pray for peace with the hope that humanity will wake up to embrace our collective humanity with respect.
All children of the Divine creator whose abiding love does not discriminate and wantonly desecrate and shatter the lives of the innocent and the defenseless.
I close with a quote:
“When a person feeds the temptation of their unbridled self-serving ambition and greed to dominate and overpower their better judgment, without reflective remorse; then, they reduce their human instincts and conscious awareness to become nothing more than a blood-sucking tyrannical parasite to despoil humanity and also this sacred planet”
