It’s Probably Nothing

Putin orders all Russian children who are abroad to be brought home, cancels a diplomatic trip to Paris, stations nuclear armed missiles in Kaliningrad on the Baltic coast, within range of all of Western Europe, and orders a countrywide nuclear war evacuation test. Meanwhile, US Air Force drops dummy nuke bombs in Nevada desert test run as Russian television warns United States not to engage in provocative action. But it’s probably nothing.

But surely Putin cannot mean
To start a war, or make a scene
He merely needs attention so
He blusters, not to mention Joe
Q. Russian public do not want
A paranoid and crazy little runt
To start a war that might well end
The life of every family, friend
And so it’s best to ignore all
At least until the big ones fall
So lazily from obscene heights
And turn the days to winter nights
