Leroy Brown was bad so no one messed around with him.
Meaner than a junk-yard dog... 'though, meaner still was Jim.
Jim looks like a pussycat, however, when compared
To the Russian President. Heck, even Big Jim's scared.
Putin's not a man the opposition wants to cross,
As their leader, Boris Nemtsov, learned - to his great loss.
Murdered by the Kremlin's wall; they shot him in the back.
Cameras weren't working at the site of the attack.
No one knows who pulled the trigger but the point is clear;
Russian opposition leaders have good cause to fear.
Do not spit into the wind or tug on Putin's cape...
Not unless they've also started planning their escape.
