Now that living with Covid is the norm
and we continue to live with less pain.
The biggest tragedy engulfing the world
is the inhuman suffering in Ukraine.
Peaceful citizens simply living their lives
in a country where families can grow,
are suddenly plunged into a horrible state
of chaos and unprecedented woe.
Even women and children are subjected to
being pillaged and slayed every day.
Hospitals and schools are targeted too
in a callous and cold-hearted way.
There seems no end to this terrible strife
from a twisted and demented mind.
Who would slaughter at will, bringing great pain
to many lives and all of mankind.
Instead of occasionally losing our cool
over matters that are usually trite.
Let us remember those unfortunate souls
as they face an impossible fight.
