RKS Poetry: “Rasputin Putin”

“Rasputin Putin”

As you recall Rasputin the mystic
attached himself like a parasite to Mother Russia
attempted to seize Tsardom
isolated and lost in mystic haze
graze on the oligarchs thievery masked in the international banking haze
devoid of reality after locking his wife in a monastery
to dilly dally with a ballerina who ended up in
floating heads in a marina
Poor Ballerina
focus on building back the empire
of holy mother Russia
pardon me a la style of Prussia
we are waiting for you in a war crimes trial
unless you continue to poison opposition members with plutonium in a vial
enjoy your cuppa Supreme leader a la Stalin
you desperate vermin
