Vladimir Putin: A Portrait

Putin is a criminal.
Putin is a thug.
Putin needs Elton John
to give him a big hug.

Protesters rot in prison for years for engaging in legal demonstrations.
He kills his critics with car bombs, polonium
or plain-old-fashioned assassination.
Journalists, human rights activists,
liberal politicians,
subversive musicians,
dissidents, wealthy businessmen
and anyone else who gets in his way
will pay the price. 

With his pug face and quiet voice, the former KGB man plays Mr. Innocent.  Meanwhile, his
"Investigative Committee," an extrajudicial body, works like Stalin's troikas.
His repellent laws and repressive tactics have earned his United Russia the nickname "the party of thieves and scoundrels."

Putin's police-state made those Pussies Riot
then he threw them in jail to keep them quiet.
He legitimizes hate-mongering through medieval legislation.
Under his new laws, anyone who wears a rainbow flag or tweets a positive message about gays or lesbians can be put in jail and fined.  Police can arrest tourists and foreigners suspected of being gay or pro-gay and keep them imprisoned for up to 14 days.  Welcome to the Sochi Olympics!  

Putin, you hate-monger,
the ghost of Tchaikovsky
hovers over your head.
The ghost of Tchaikovsky
will one day see you dead.

The ghosts of Tchaikovsky, Sergei Diaghilev, Vaslav Nijinsky,  Sergei Eisenstein, Erté, Pavel Tchelitchew, Alla Nazimova, Sviatoslav Richter, Vladimir Horowitz, Marina Tsvetaeva, and Rudolf Nureyev---your fellow gay or bisexual Russians---will dance on your grave, puny Putin, you small-minded bigot!  Shame on you, your own countrymen and countrywomen mock your warped outlook.

Putin and his cronies control the media.  The people aren't told that Russia aids and supports Hezbollah, Hamas, and other terrorist organizations through their proxies Syria and Iran.  Many aren't aware that Putin's FSB (the renamed KGB) has a long history of staging false-flag events in order to accomplish their agenda.  In 1999 the FSB/KGB bombed apartment buildings across Russia, killing hundreds, and blamed the attacks on Chechnya separatists.  This false-flag operation brought Putin to power as president and gave Russia an excuse to start the Second Chechen War.

The fishy-eyed thug and his mafia coterie steal billions of rubles from the people, enriching themselves through corruption, bribes, cronyism, and murder.  Putin is one of Europe's richest men, and

he's also a judo master
holding the rank of Red/White Belt.
His Harai Goshi (sweeping hip throw)
looks rather feminine and svelte.
Is he gay?  He's a Black-Belt karate master,
so don't ask, or he'll put your arm in plaster.
He's a macho guy, he hunts and fishes,
stands up when he pishes.

The Russian people want "Little Vladimir" gone
but the brutal dictator lingers on.
Like Myanmar under military rule
his stagnant regime is dictatorial and cruel.
His Soviet-style Federation is a sham, but he'll rule until 2024
unless you show him to the door.

The Russian people are very very quiet
cowering in fear.
They need more PussyRiot.
Rise up, O Russians, rise up while you can!
Get rid of this dangerous evil man and his mafia clan!
