The Last Defender

For over three hundred years, the Russian Bear
has wandered down from the cold north
to the warmer climate that beholds
the North Caucasus.

He ravaged anything that got in his path
in order to make the land safe for his kind.

To the Muslims of Chechnya and other Caucasian nations migration was the order of the day.

Many died because of this forced exile.
Others survived to hopefully drive the Russian Bear out of their homeland someday.

Recently Muslim Freedom fighters kept the Bear at bay, prohibiting it from entering the capital of Grozny.

They fought gallantly against a most powerful enemy
inflicting much damage on him

Until finally, the last defender atop a minaret
died for his homeland and Islam.
