Value of Ruble Like Homonym Of Debris Name

Russia is in a world of hurt not from the sanctions imposed by the West
Too much like gnats, Putin’s desires for Russian expansion they will not arrest
In the grip of winter Russian holds all the natural gas cards
Once again Obama on Crimea and Ukraine was surprised and his strategy is marred
But Russia is being hit with the Perfect Financial Storm of oil and gas prices in free fall
Moving into a recession that by even pumping more it will not be able to delay or forestall
Russia is a one horse economy in which over two thirds of its exports are oil and natural gas
Decrease EU demand and it will be like throwing a large rock through plate glass
Interest rates are so high it is hard for Russian business to borrow
Falling GNP will only add to the Russian people’s economic sorrow
The Russian ruble is starting its free fall taking on a homonym of debris of like sounding name
But still Putin is playing the Eastern European acquisition game
When will the oligarchs seeing their wealth being subject to loss
Rise up and seek to terminate Putin as Russia’s boss?
When will the U.S. start liquefying its fracked natural gas and selling it to the EU?
To enable them to bid their dependence on Russian energy adieu
