Pitch Black, War Limerks Are Not Fun

There was a rogue called Putin
Who liked ‘Guns & Roses’ and shootin’
He wouldn’t talk to the Poms
And didn’t like Ukrainian bombs
When he was in bed with Rasputin

Pitch black clouds rolled in from the north
Carrying war crimes back and forth
From a bloody torn Ukraine
When will the bombs stop raining​?
Pitch black cinders on our broken earth

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. By the way, I just a had a thought about Gerry’s challenge. Next time he posts a challenge, ignore the context, he makes it too personal; just go with the words in the title (if that’s possible). 🙂
