The Wrecking Ball
The wrecking ball has struck our lives again
‘Midst cherished hopes of a world at peace
Invasion on Europe’s eastern flanks
From tyranny a prayer for release
The wrecking ball swung with relentless force
Who can this weighty pendulum resist?
Appeals to reason or appeasement unavail
Might and justice fail to coexist
Will this wrecking ball sound the death knell
Of post war tenuous years of truce?
A renewed Cold War the best we can expect?
Living precariously with this new truth
