Fear Not

She overcame her fear

And came out to do her bit

That lady on Russian television

She really showed true grit

And fear is the issue

It has haunted all our lives

From the days I prayed for Russia

As the pope incentivised


We live in fear of the Russian bear

They live in fear of us

But we do nothing to alleviate

This deadly deadly curse

We think ourselves superior

Their system so much worse

But their people they are human

People just like us


This war must teach us something

To overcome our fear

To extend the hand of friendship

To make intentions clear

The lady on the television

What will become of her?

Will she suddenly disappear?

And us now will we care?
