Their Playground

Their playground, our world

The bullies intimidate

Taking what they want

Caught in their dangerous game

We are expendable pawns

It is Deja Vu

Cold War resuscitated

There are no winners

Just two very big egos

Gambling our existence


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Another Cold War (Tanka)

Another cold war

A game of chess that we lost

To an old rival

Who pays for incompetence

The citizens of Ukraine
