With A Ripple It Began

written by: Anne G



With a ripple, it began.

Whispers - doubt

words, then fear

waters stirred,

 the waves appeared.

Swirling. eddy

cause - effect

threatening posture

rhetoric spewed.

Deep and dark

the current flowed

then it surfaced

and we knew.

Intention clear

the threat unveiled

naked scheme

a Putsch declared.

Annex Crimea

destroy Donetsk usurp Ukraine

Lithuania - Latvia

Estonia next?

Tanks and planes

soldiers - guns

panic - pain

the death knell tolled.

With a ripple it began.

Why write?

I write because I am:

Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.

My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!
