• Loss of Singapore

    From Lazarus Cain@21:1/5 to All on Sat Mar 19 15:14:59 2022
    Singapore, Lack of water supply forced the British to surrender early in this siege.
    Too much faith in defenders without adequate water?, not a problem if city on a river,. but river water polluted, like many.
    No river for Mariupol though.

    By the great number of tears shed,
    from top to bottom and from the bottom to the very top,
    a life is lost through a game with too much faith,
    to die of thirst through a great deficiency
