Little Ukrainian Dog

(To the tune loosely of Tom Petty's You Don't Know What It's Like)

Little dog
Sleeping under the porch
Wakes to find
His whole world scorched

Little dog
Finds the rest of the house gone
Looks around
Everything seems wrong

What's a little dog to do
But find a path
And see it through
Maybe his humans are over there
Maybe his humans are over here
Once the smoke is gone
Maybe things will be clear
To a little dog

Little dog
Hides in the woods
Sees men with tanks
Stealing goods

Little dog
Sees them shooting people where they stand
Sees tanks run over them
Pressing them into the land

Little dog
Finds a little girl in rags
She picks him up
Reads his tags

Little dog
Hears the tanks come
She holds him tight
And starts to run

Did the little dog
Make it or not
Is the little girl
More than a spot
I guess we'll never know
Putin's war isn't for show
We just watch while a democracy falls
Cause free nations don't have the balls
Of a little dog
