Speaking Ukrainian & Overcoming Hate… We Don’t Have To Be Enemies… (aka Mile Marker #757)

Posted: 2016-12-26 in ©ddr7hd, Да, я понимаю, Mira, Pamyat, Polina, Thoughts For The Day, We Don't Have To Be Enemies

Everyone hates Ukrainians,


read history and news.

They all have a reason,

Poles, Jews, Russians, the EU.

… And you?

Me, I try to escape.

I go to the Pentathlon World Championships.

It’s Moskva (Raz, dva, tri!)…

The action is good and honest.

But, shit!

The Ukrainian has a gun,

pointing straight at everyone.

The poster is loud and clear, I turn away in fear.


Impulses and repulses,

We miss the years of Soyuz,

In a sense,

Pain and defence,

We flinch…

but, please,

most of all,

can we remember,



the things we share,





matter of fact

… we don’t have to be enemies?
