Exhortation

Exhortation

Here in the West, our leaders, mostly queers,
Are urging all the Slavs in far Ukraine
To keep on fighting. Keep it up for years,
You guys. Accept uncertainty and pain—
And, if complaint’s insistent, then complain
That Russia isn’t nice to flaming gays!
To make peace with those orcs would be insane.
Oh, please maintain belligerent displays!
Through self-extermination, you’ll win praise
From those who have invested eagerly
In what was once your country, whom it pays
To pitch a murderous mentality.
Your future will of course be far from sunny—
But still you’ll launder further Biden money.
