Fasting Really Helps

Fasting belongs to times of sorrow

And this is such a time

The suffering of Ukraine goes on

Will they see tomorrow?


Fast from feasting and give to those

Who live with empty shelves

Fast from careless words also

Become our better selves


Fast from anger let us be

Calm in the face of danger

Ask the Spirit to set us free

From all that might derange us


Fast and discipline one’s self

Become a better person

Increase the goodness of this world

A blessing not a curse on


Do not demonise Putin

It lets us off the hook

Play the honest game with him

Or are we too a crook?
