The theatre of war

Is two steps from your chair.

You watch it on the screen,

You calculate the odds

While weighing up the form

And placing your next bet

On where the bombs will fall.

Those in the know predict

That Kyiv is odds-on.

The news comes through at six:

Bulls-eye! Time to collect,

For your holiday cruise.


But please, gamble responsibly!

I think you put it well, Uilleam. Since one can bet on anything now, why not bet on war? I'm sure someone is doing it, not very successfully perhaps.

And many thanks to Nigel, John, Purplemoon, Pete and Rudyard.

What a disconnection (cognitive dissonance?) between the horrors we know are taking place, and mindless "entertainment" all via our screens at the same time.
