Stanford Joins Academia in Severing Contract with Putin's Russia

At Stanford the motto is “Let the Winds of Freedom Blow
In Putin’s Russia the Winds of Freedom Never Go
Ironic that a university with the Hoover Institution iconic symbol of conservative thought
As Russian missiles and shells fired in Ukraine civilian targets are being sought
While universities and colleges are severing ties with Russia in hyper speed
Trying to distance themselves from innocent Ukrainians that from Russian shells and missiles now bleed
Stanford was probably the last to have with Russia a contract
To for $1.7 million perform DNA sequencing due to skills the Russians lack
Putin must see the doors of business, sports, recreation, travel, education and art to him closed shut
Weapons in an open stream to the Russian invasion wallow in a deepening rut
Looks like Stanford has seen the lights and has come to its senses
Cancelling its contract and with Russian strengthening its isolation fences
