Ukraine Fights Back


I hear Ukraine crying
Her people are dying,
And then the firebombs rain
No sympathy for her pain,
She’s being cruelly scourged
And her poor people purged,
I and the whole world sigh;
She cries.

I hear the Allies moan
But, she’s still standing alone,
We see how she’s treated
She’s abused but not defeated,
She fights, she wants to live
Fight with all she’s got to give,
Without warmth, and stomachs keep;
She weeps.

I hear the world grieve
It looks in awe in disbelieve,
Destruction’s now everywhere
Russia shows no care,
Bitter cold has taken its toll
Killing many unfortunate souls,
And everything around her fails;
She wails.

I hear Ukraine howl
Then I hear the world growl,
With mighty political speeches
Promises lying in pieces,
But she fights and won't listen
Alone she’ll go the distance,
Ukraine will fight, won’t be denied;
Won’t die.
