February 20, Invasion?
Does Putin want to start a war?
Well, he already has.
Must bullets fly and cannons roar?
He won’t need all that jazz.
Cut off their gas, cyber attacks,
Use Donald Trump; feed Fox News “facts,”
And drive the West insane.
Warfare, as it was once defined,
Has changed before our eyes.
Technology has been refined;
The weapons: cyber lies.
We know that Putin likes to kill;
At least, he doesn’t mind.
That makes us pretty sure he will,
Though NATO stays aligned.
Rebuilding Russia’s old empire,
Becoming its new tsar,
Drive Vladimir to fan the fire
And wake a dinosaur.
Can economic sanctions drive
The Bear back in his cave?
If not, can the Ukraine survive
If Putin won’t behave?
