Alexei Lives On....



They say
he was a musician
in his previous life
before
becoming
one of the
self-defense forces
in eastern Ukraine
protecting
his people
from attack
by the Kiev junta
armed, trained
and directed
by US-NATO

He often spoke
of peace
between
Ukrainian brothers
he spoke of feeding
the people
offering social
justice
as a vision
of a real nation
and a better future

Alexei Mozgovoi
was killed today
gunned down
in an ambush
by shooters
who felt
threatened
by his peaceful
words
and directness
as he pointed
out
the real enemies
of the people
the oligarchies
that rule
from both sides
of the divide

Rest in peace
Alexei
your word song
will remain
in my heart
stand
for the people
don't divide
one brother
one nation
against
the other

Sing the song
of peace
with justice
Alexei
lives on.
