The Town of Mariupol
(John Murphy)

Nico came from the city by the ocean,
Three days ago, Mama put him on the train,
She hugged him in that crowded railway station,
And she prayed that she would see him once again.
Surrounded by real frightened anxious people,
As they started on their journey to the west,
Mostly women, old men, and young children,
Tired and frightened people dispossessed.

Their tanks and planes have killed their so-called brothers,
They rue the day they knocked the Berlin Wall,
As history repeats itself, a terror is unleashed,
And in its wake the town -
of Mariupol.

Yana used to work in the port market,
She set up every day her little stall,
Dolls and souvenirs and keepsake trinkets,
For a special price she used to sell them all.
But now her heart is filled with fear and anguish,
As she searches through the rubble with the crews,
And every now and then, the tears start rolling down her face.
When she finds another pair of blood-stained shoes.

Their tanks and planes have killed their so-called brothers,
They rue the day they knocked the Berlin Wall,
As history repeats itself, a terror is unleashed,
And in its wake the town -
of Mariupol.


Sergiy was a postman and a dancer,
He was so graceful on his daily route,
But now he is a soldier in the army,
Trained to use a bayonet and to shoot,
He mans the barricades with trepidation,
As he waits for the oppressors to arrive.
And he thinks about his family,
As they lie low underground,
His only wish and prayer is
getting back to them alive.

He who gives the orders can’t be human,
He who sends these troops must be insane,
He who’d kill the innocent and terrorise the weak,
Will wish he had not targeted,
The Heroes of Ukraine.

I've just listened to this on YouTube. Excellent, poignant.
