He became president and a servant;
there was no precedent for such fervent.
The comedian had promised them ‘flower’;
and the people gave him power.
Rada had promised them ‘flour power’.
I loved you… Ya vas lyubil…* * (Я вас любил)
From the African Ethiopia
to the Russian utopia.
I loved you wordlessly… hopelessly
He wanted freedom
was against serfdom.
I do not wish to cause you any pain…
So many duels; what did you learn from it Pushkin?
Tormented, I was too jealous and too shy…
Shot through the lens
by the young Lensky;
Pushkin in the sky
with the poet Lensky.
And the people joined Zelensky.
Give me Onegin, said the jealous man…
Give me one gin, said the drunk man…
Give us Zelensky, said the people of Ukraine…
Lensky was banned
by the Ministry of Culture;
Zelensky and Russian
had caused a real rupture.
From the origins of Eshkol, Golda, Sharansky and Jabotinsky;
a new chapter has been added with Zelensky.
