Droplets of Verse: ‘Putin’s Fancy Dress Costume’

He’s already been portrayed as Adolf Hitler
All over the world wide web, and on social media
To the people of Russia, he’s Superman
A swashbuckling swordsman, a musketeer

He swims like the Man From Atlantis
Recovers artefacts from deep waters, like Indiana Jones
His favourite party game is Walk the Plank
His party hat is always the skull and crossbones

He could’ve been understudy to Marlon Brando
In the Godfather, his minions are force fed fear
A costume, however, is simply not needed
He’s created his own character – brutal dictator
