For the Victims of Ukraine

The wind releases

The souls of the dead

They cry for the children and the dispossessed

Their blood a witness to cruelty

The awful stain of war

The wind will not have

The final word

The brave heroes who stand

Who Fight

They will have the final say

Tyrants will turn to dust

Their memory a curse

Rotting in hell.
