Droplets of Verse: ‘Trojan Horses With Fat Tyres’

Army lorries lined up at a border crossing
Hastily painted white, but without a red cross
Loaded with water, baby food and generators
Strangely, each with only a half full interior

Inspectors checked thoroughly, to allow authority
But the lorries lost patience and drove off, towards the cities
International law violated, the real motive betrayed
An invasion disguised as humanitarian aid

On the return journey, the lorries made a detour
To armament factories, to clear out the stores
Equipment stolen – the real purpose of the mission
Trojan horses with fat tyres – fuelled by Kremlin ambition
