Ukrainian emergency employees and volunteers carry an injured pregnant woman from the damaged by shelling maternity hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine.Ukrainian emergency employees and volunteers carry an injured pregnant woman from the damaged by shelling maternity hospital in Mariupol, Ukraine.

The innocent.

The season is a changing fast
The bulbs are pushing up through snow
Their roots are spreading down below
Above there’s war, bombs fall and tanks blast
Nature hears the echos of the past.
She wonders will man ever learn
As innocents they crush and burn.
The Russians lie and will ignore
It is false news the liars roar.
Against evil we must stand firm.

        If we don’t. Look at history. Germany took Poland and they kept on going. Europe should have great concern. You are welcome dear friend.

        I am my dear friend. Now the leaders must be. USA waited for many years in WW1 and WW2. If the world gathered and fought as one quickly. How many lives could of been saved. Many countries disappointed in the USA. I believe the European countries are strong. Don’t mess with the sleeping giants.
