No time for regrets

A bully gets bolder over time,
taking advantage of the passivity of decent people.
So now, as we wring our hands over Kiev,
we can only regret that we shrugged at the sight
of the little green men, and what is more,
we had a great time at the Luzhniki afterwards.
Except that this is not the time for vain regrets,
because Kiev’s fate may cast a shadow over Taipei,
and nobody wants to get caught in the domino rally
of the nuclear-armed strong men.
