Red Volga

by: Boat

A river scarred with ice 
Deep lashes into its soul
Blood bubbling to its scarred surface
Incrossible, Impassible, Undianiable
A river so flooded over its banks
With the bodies 
Overflowing the Volga’s wide birth
A river once so clean and fresh
Now a sea of bronze and lead
Covered with a layer of thick red oil
Holding in the trundles of dead, men, women, and children
The families of the river preserved forever
In the ice which cant be broken
Except by, shells smashing holes 
In the ice, creating
rossette geysers blasting into the sky
Horrifying reminders of what lays
