In This Vain Vain War

Who ain’t yet sick of this bloodbath
Between two estranged Soviet sons
Why world must bear the aftermath
Of a dread of deadly dimensions!

Why Ukraine wants to join NATO
Ain’t it the US, UK, … snare
To pulverize Putin’s epic ego
At the cost of Ukraine’s faith and fear!

Why Zel… forgot his comedy
To build new megaliths of hatred
Who invented this tragedy
Between two brothers who shared the same bread!

Whose prejudice and whose pride will win
Is a matter of a mean metaphor
Who’ll overwhelm whom, Zelensky or Putin
In This Vain Vain War!
