M. Daedalus - POETRY / POESIA

Ukrainian Spring

A Geiger counter whistles a fast song
The birds gladly join in
The flowers dot the tranquil plain
Amid five leafed shamrocks

But the children are absent
Abandoned doors bang in the April wind
Stray dogs became masters of the land

Distant crosses lost their angle
Nature returned to nature
Concrete domes released god's wrath

All that was pride became negligence
All that was future became decay
All that was solidarity became demagogy
All that was hope became limbo
