Stud Hamster Heroism

“Into the cul-de-sac!”
“Once more the grand attack!”
“Take what we just lost back!”
Heedless of peril

Fresh from our gopher holes
Out in the open, moles
Threaten civilian proles
Ain’t we just feral!

US and NATO trained
Much lost and nothing gained
Russia not even strained
“Strategy” sterile

Still, let’s remember this
“Ukraine” is our abyss
More targets hard to miss
Fish in a barrel.
