No more guys lying in trenches
bellies in mud.
Now it’s restricted air space,
assaults on internatonal banking,
going after the yachts of oligarchs.
I feel like I’ve seen an age come
and go.  Smiling family pictures
of Zelensky complete with whimsical
face paint, demonization of Putin,
shirtless on a horse.

This is all good I guess for democracy,
even Sweden and Finland taking sides.
We’ll do a cleaner economc war
with economic sanctions.  Wars
can be done in a different way.
Even so, still there’s blood.
