Awaiting the new…

***

Three weeks to flatten the Rusky economy… A standing ovation in the chamber… For the Ambassador of a beleaguered nation… The new narrative… Is following very similar lines… To the old one… Pity the Ambassador… Before too long he will be discarded… After being demonised… And vilified… It is dangerous to be an enemy… Of the States… But fatal to be their friend… Meanwhile… Mister Europe… Is advocating an aerial attack… On the line of tanks… Trawling their way… To Kiev… That kind of advocacy… Is best left… Ignored… And two prominent Ex-Ozzie Cricketers… Have died prematurely.

Maybe the masses… Will finally begin to see… Just what has been inflicted upon them… Now those previously utilised to sell the poison… Are dropping from its effects… Weren’t questions formerly raised in the House… About such things… Didn’t the western nations… Formerly uphold… Freedom and democracy?… Silly questions… These days… The narrative forgers… Are like the spoiled kid at school… Who confiscates his ball… When he starts to lose the game… Initiates a new game… And promptly starts to lose that one too… Your purportedly… Free democratic state… Is a rogue nation!

Like all the rest… Its president is… A comedian… No, literally… And his current crop of jokes… Are about as funny… As, well, genocide actually… Which his government… Also stands accused of… That may be a bit of a stretch… But his troops… Have been shelling factions… Of his own people… For the last eight years… In direct contravention… Of internationally negotiated agreements… But this is the country we are expected to stand with… The muzzle bunnies… Have been swift… To adopt the new stance… What will they do… When this one too… Rapidly… Goes the way… Of all the others?
