Mr Putin

Tomin Mooney 1972 (Cochin)



Mr Putin had a fall
The Cardinals of the Kremlin had a ball
He hurt all over, tail bone and all
They say he lost it  
.. some poop not big but small
Mr Putin had a fall.

Mr Putin had a fall
He tried but couldn’t, so he made a call
Body double .02 took that call
“I’ll pass it to .01 would that be all ?”
But alas he was at the bar in the middle of a brawl
Mr Putin had a fall.

Mr Putin had a fall
His surgeon came panting one big and tall
The X ray machine purred out and said it all
The coccyx is hurting, but not broken at all
‘Will have to be a nappy while going potty that’s all’
Said the mousy little maid at his beck and call
Mr Putin had a fall.

Mr Putin had a fall
The Cardinals of the Kremlin gazed crystal ball
For Donetsk, Kyiv, Ukraine, beyond and all
Will he or wont he make that call
For the armies of Red, generals big and small
And for the world at large may peace befall
Mr Putin, please make that call.

About this poem

Its about war. The war. Its been 9 months since the Russian forces marched into Ukraine. The news headlines gushed 2 days ago 'Vladimir Putin fell down stairs at his home and soiled himself'. From that came this.
