Odessa ( In flames )

They’re burning our flags at midnight

they’re bathing their rage in our tears ,

they’re raising their arms like Romans

they’re winding back the years .


They’re spitting their hate on our gravestones

they’re tearing up the pages of history ,

they’re attacking us every day now

but who is paying them remains a mystery.


Personal footnote:

Prior to the German invasion in June 1941,Odessa is where my Father lived with his then family. For my comprehensive views and commentary on what else is happening there ,visit my blogs:- And So It Goes on WordPress ,fahrenheit451 on Blog.co.uk and kulturist on thoughts.com
