Russian Jihad

Death shan’t be feared
during this fight
for sins are cleared
and souls blanched white
Heaven awaits
with open gates
Putin’s plug-ins

At least so says Russian Orthodox patriarch Kirill. I missed this in September and only learned of it while reading about Putin’s “our real Christmas not your fake Christmas” cease-fire request.

Scoffing The Wise

Scheming demons
in kingly guise
foisting treasons
on the unwise
Moving the light
closer to night
and flaying day

The Fact Remains

I don’t think so
and won’t commit
And you don’t know
so why say it
It isn’t clear
why we’re all here
but we do be
