Pitiful Putin

Pitiful Putin

Putin’s dying of some dread disease.
Which one? Don’t be impertinent, please!
The point is, things are bad
For the loser named Vlad!
(We produce these vague rumors with ease.)

Sanctioners Sanctioned

Sanctioners Sanctioned

We are causing that Putin guy pain

With our sanctions – all due to Ukraine.

              Is he tough?  Not at all.

              We are making him crawl!

Still, the ruble ascends.  It’s insane!

Sen. Graham Doubles Down

Sen. Graham Doubles Down

Lindsey’s sick of your Russian patoot,
Mr. Putin! Against you he’ll root!
Is he scared of you? Not!
But you need to be shot!
(What this means is, he thinks that you’re cute.)

Deep State Diplomacy

Deep State Diplomacy

Diabolical Putin must die!
So suggests Lindsey Graham with a cry
Of imperial zeal.
Putin’s shrugging. Big deal!
Sissy threats are a breeze to defy.

In Line

In Line

R. Emmett Tyrrell needs us all in line.
Conservatives must back the tranny leader
Of NATO pawn Ukraine. Guys, get a spine!
The queerer that a hero is, the sweeter
Supporting him will be. His dance in heels
Was anyhow a mere comedic matter.
As he comes up with more and smoother spiels,
He’ll win you over with his macho patter.
And, anyhow, a war – most any war—
Ought to give right-wing guys a huge erection.
What else are our armed forces even for?
In conflict only do we find perfection.
Not to assist this actor is a crime.
He is, at last, the Churchill of our time.

Olga

Olga

You had dynastic reasons to convert,
They tell us. You were cold and calculating,
They tell us. Gutlessly pontificating,
They tell us to be endlessly alert
To these your faults. I trust you are not hurt—
You who look down on those still vaguely waiting
For elevation when the elevating
Comes easily, whose hearts are near inert.
You chose your zeal – but then you burned with zeal.
Christ rose indeed – and proved victorious
In you and in your heirs. The bloodless deal
We make with sin in you was ended thus.
You were, though nowadays the pigs still squeal,
Quite as sincere as any one of us.

(St. Olga, Equal to the Apostles, pray for us, that the Lord may grant us strength!)

Hitler Squared

Hitler2

You wouldn’t lick the sole of NATO’s boot—
So, Putin, you’re a sort of Hitler Squared.
You wouldn’t kiss the West’s obscene patoot.
You wouldn’t lick the sole of NATO’s boot.
You wouldn’t poison Russia at the root.
Such a refusal cannot be repaired!
You wouldn’t lick the sole of NATO’s boot—
So, Putin, you’re a sort of Hitler Squared.

Neo-Con Humanitarian Zeal

Neo-Con Humanitarian Zeal

What? Ethnic cleansing in the Donbass? Hey,
If Russian speakers didn’t want to learn
Ukrainian, then fuck them up, we say.
To hell or Moscow let them all return.
In how these pricks were treated, we discern
No crime. If 14,000 of them died,
They no doubt had it coming. Russkies earn
Their fates. Request for sympathy: denied!
When Putin intervened, though, then we cried
Aloud that decency must be upheld.
Our moralizing we declined to hide.
Tremendous teardrops in our eyeballs swelled.
We didn’t let our rush to judgment stall.
No, sir. We are the good guys, after all.

Russia, Veni Foras!

Russia, Veni Foras!

Et hæc cum dixisset, voce magna clamavit:
Lazare, veni foras!

The man who brought back Russia from the dead?
Oh, what a monster! He’s the guy we hate!
He should have let his nation rot instead!
The man who brought back Russia from the dead
Inspires in Western fairies endless dread.
He won’t embrace their narrative as fate.
The man who brought back Russia from the dead:
Oh, what a monster! He’s the guy we hate!

What a Man Who Dresses as a Woman Really Wants

What a Man Who Dresses as a Woman Really Wants

How obvious can fake news peddlers be?
When it’s required, atrocities are there!
Zelensky really wants that World War Three

That you and I regard suspiciously.
Destroy those evil Russians from the air!
How obvious can fake news peddlers be?

The Ghost of Kyiv, whom no one got to see,
Still haunts the West. Performing from his lair,
Zelensky really wants that World War Three!

Putin is Adolf Hitler, wickedly
Returning from the dead. It isn’t fair!

How obvious can fake news peddlers be?

Contemptuous of objectivity,
They hope that we will only glance, not stare.
Zelensky really wants that World War Three.

He savors every future casualty.
The Slavic realm of course has lives to spare.
How obvious can fake news peddlers be?
Zelensky really wants that World War Three.
