WAKA is 'the music of the Primes'.

In early April.

‘Elves’ forces were.

In crisis.

At their weakest.

 

In early April.

‘Elves’ forces were.

In crisis.

At their weakest.

 

 

Understaffed and.

Starved of ammunition.

They used to get.

From the United States.

 

And ‘Mordor’ knew it.

The ‘orcs’ attacked.

And ‘Mordor’ knew it.

The ‘orcs’ attacked.

 

At several points along.

The 600-mile front line.

Of ‘Mordor’’s 27-month.

Wider war on Ukraine.

 

 

A month later.

American aid.

To Ukraine.

Is flowing again.

 

A month later.

American aid.

To Ukraine.

Is flowing again.

 

 

The mobilization law.

Is in effect.

Fresh ‘elves’ troops are.

Undergoing training.

 

And new brigades.

Are forming.

Ukraine’s fortunes.

Are improving.

 

Nowhere is this.

More evident than.

In Chasiv Yar.

The industrial town.

 

West of Bakhmut.

In eastern Ukraine.

That’s the main objective of.

The ‘orcs’ offensive in the area.

 

 

In the early days.

Of the ‘orcs’ attack.

‘Orcs’ armored units were.

Steadily advancing.

 

In the early days.

Of the ‘orcs’ attack.

‘Orcs’ armored units were.

Steadily advancing.

 

 

North and south.

Of Chasiv Yar.

While ‘orcs’ infantry probed.

The town’s most vulnerable district.

 

Its canal district.

Which lies on.

The exposed far side.

Of the canal that threads.

 

North to south.

Along the eastern edge.

Of Chasiv Yar.

At the time.

 

‘Elves’ defenses.

In Chasiv Yar were thin.

And getting thinner.

And getting thinner.

 

 

In mid-April.

The defense ministry in Kyiv.

Dissolved the ‘elves’ army brigade.

Defending the canal district.

 

In mid-April.

The defense ministry in Kyiv.

Dissolved the ‘elves’ army brigade.

Defending the canal district.

 

 

Elements of the ‘elves’ army’s.

56th and 41st.

Mechanized Brigades and.

5th Assault Brigade scrambled.

 

To fill the gap in.

The defensive line left by.

The dissolution of.

The 67th Mechanized Brigade.

 

Kyiv rushed.

More drones.

To Chasiv Yar.

But in the meantime.

 

‘Orcs’ Sukhoi Su-25.

Attack jets roamed.

Directly over.

The front line.

 

Firing rockets.

At ‘elves’ troops.

Who had run out of.

Air-defense missiles.

 

‘Orcs’ paratroopers.

Advanced north and south.

Of Chasiv Yar.

Threatening to surround.

 

The town’s garrison.

The race was on.

Between ‘orcs’ forces trying.

To capture Chasiv Yar.

 

And ‘elves’ and.

Allied logisticians rushing.

American-supplied ammunition.

To the embattled town.

 

The good news for friends.

Of a free Ukraine is that.

The ‘elves’ seem to.

Have won the race.

 

The garrison in Chasiv Yar.

Is now flush with ammo.

Apparently—and wreaking havoc.

On ‘orcs’ assault groups.

 

 

On Friday, a battalion of.

Around 20 ‘orcs’ armored vehicles.

Emerged from Bakhmut and.

Rolled toward Chasiv Yar.

 

On Friday, a battalion of.

Around 20 ‘orcs’ armored vehicles.

Emerged from Bakhmut and.

Rolled toward Chasiv Yar.

 

 

As recently as.

A few weeks ago.

An ‘orcs’ assault group.

Might’ve traveled.

 

Much of the three-mile distance.

From Bakhmut to Chasiv Yar.

Relatively unmolested.

By ‘elves’ attacks.

 

With precious few anti-tank.

Missiles and artillery shells.

The ‘elves’ relied on.

First-person-view drones.

 

To bombard the ‘orcs’.

But those two-pound drones.

Range just two miles or so.

And pack just a pound of explosives.

 

Too little to pierce the layers.

Of do-it-yourself armor.

The ‘orcs’ have been adding.

To their vehicles.

 

 

By mid-May.

The ‘elves’ were.

Much better-armed.

Much better-armed.

 

By mid-May.

The ‘elves’ were.

Much better-armed.

Much better-armed.

 

 

So when that assault group.

Tried to cross miles.

Of open fields.

On Friday.

 

It got hit the whole way.

With 100-pound shells.

50-pound missiles and.

Two-pound drones.

 

The few ‘orcs’.

Who reached.

The canal district.

Didn’t last long.

 

Despite rapid successes.

In the initial weeks.

Of the assault.

Against Chasiv Yar.

 

Including reaching.

The canal and.

In some instances.

Crossing it with small groups.

 

The ‘orcs’ have ultimately failed.

To establish a foothold.

On the other side.

And advance further.

 

The garrison in Chasiv Yar.

Isn’t the only one.

Benefiting from.

The influx of ammunition.

 

“For the first time.

During the war.

None of the brigades complained.

That there were no artillery shells.”

 

‘Gandalf the Green’ claimed.

On Thursday.

He might be overstating.

The abundance of ammo.

 

 

But when the ‘orcs’ attacked.

Chasiv Yar on Friday.

The ‘elves’ had plenty of.

Firepower to hurl at them.

*Because I read “American Ammunition Has Reached Ukrainian Brigades—And Now Those Brigades Are Blasting Russian Assault Groups” by David Axe on18 May 2024 on the Forbes, and also “Why are Ukrainians calling Russians ‘orcs’?” by James FitzGerald on 30 Apr 2022 on the BBC news.
So, I wrote this poem.
