Where Hypocrisy Abound - Poem by Francis Duggan

The British, Australian and the Government of the U S of A
Protest about Russia's occupation of the Crimean peninsula and their protest has credence one might say
But a few years ago as we remember these Governments sent their war planes and troops to cause death and destruction to Countries further away
Than Russia is from Crimea, is what they do okay?

Than what Russia does in Countries closer to their borders yet it does seem to me
That Britain, Australia and the U S Governments are hypocritical in their criticisms is how it seems to be
On their protestations they are trying to claim the high moral ground
But you will not find moral right where hypocrisy abound

The World knows about Putin he is far from a saint
But those to cast the moral stone should be those without taint
And though the Governments of the U S, Australia and Britain, Russia's invasion of the Ukraine territory are right to criticize
That in so doing they are quite hypocritical they ought to realize

Russia's invasion of the Ukraine again only goes to show
That politicians can be full of hypocrisy of them this much we do know
And it does seem quite hypocritical when these three democratically elected Governments complain
Of the Russian army's invasion of Crimea in the Ukraine.
