Vladimir Putiny

Others have written more profound poetry on the wickedness of Putin’s war on Ukraine.

I thought I might at least rise to the challenge of a double dactyl verse. It’s a traditional comic verse form that seems ready-made for satire:

                     Thiggery thuggery
                     Vladimir Putiny
                     Thinks all around him must
                     Wish he were gone.

                     Czar-y and Stalin-y 
                     Antediluvian 
                     Cowering at tables im-
                     possibly long.
