Ukraine

The world is on the brink
a tyrant's heart so cold
evil shoots across the sky
a fear of dread around the globe
of rising mushroom clouds
a future yet untold.

History again repeats itself
a scale not seen so long
evil knocking at the door
peacemakers sing their song
a mighty army in defeat
defiance to submit still strong.

When will the missiles silence
their destruction on the land?
Patience all around running thin
enemies suffer by their own hand.
End this diabolicle war,
a world shouts out its command.

Silence falls upon the towns
a bankrupt army in retreat
the sound of cheer in Ukraine
the crunch of marching feet
the cities to rebuild
they will never taste defeat.
