Men like us

Updated: May 9

Men like us

trudge in mud under Russian fire

while callow others load the missiles.

Men like us,

those poor we hate

kneeling when the muezzin calls

On both sides of any rifle

there always were men like us.

They were: builders and rapists and crafters and papists

they were: porters and beggars and cashiers and farmers

they raised walls at the border to prevent themselves crossing over

they voted for those who promised them safety

And I can't put into words how tired I am, brother,

of those fucking men like us.
