Russian Revolution


Haven’t the despots of Russia learnt anything over the years?   Have they not gotten around to employing an army of PR consultants to bolster their military might like the western world?  It would seem not….Vladi Putin still thinks it’s enough to saddle up, bare his chest and imprison all dissenters.  Well he has attracted a few more over the past week with the banging up of the Pussy Riot protesters.  When Paul McCartney joins the protest it can only be a matter of time before Bono dons a balaclava.  Madonna has already beaten them to it and, predictably, got told to “butt out” by the Russian rulers.

Well my balaclava is in the wash….so please accept this protest poem, referencing the nursery rhyme written for “Good Queen Bess” in 16th Century Tudor England.

Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat

Where have you been?

I’ve been to the Kremlin

To see Putin


Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat

What did you see?

A towering ego

Rank hypocrisy


Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat

What did you there?

I frightened the little mouse

Under his chair



About silent seranader

I'm a London-based writer and journalist, pretty much interested in most things. I love to write fiction -- and have written several novels as well as a bunch of short stories and poems, which can be viewed at Karen on I've started up a new food blog, which reviews places to eat, quite often with a literary or arts connection. I'm enjoying writing it. A bit like eating a good meal, it isn't exactly hard work. It's currently about places in London... but, I think, that could well change.
