SOS: Mariupol



I heard you have been starved
I'm told you are too weak to cry
Your face too dry to smile 
Your feet too feeble to flee

I saw your home bombarded
Thick smokes eclipse your blue skies
I'm sure your sun is unwilling to shine
Even your moon ashamed to glitter

You took a cue from Babylon
And Kalmius now chorus her sad tales
Wailing to Azov's feet
Not a single grain found on her fertile soil

O my sweet Mariupol
Hold on one more day if you can
I'm coming dressed in legions
Succour and doves are with me
To set you free from captivity

        Dear Bella,

        Thanks for your kind words and reaching out.
        War isn't a good thing. Homes and lives are shattered. We have a responsibility of feeling for the victims and reaching out them.

        Let love and peace reign.
