Старушка (Starushka) (English translation)

Старушка

Недолго мучилась старушка
В высоковольтных проводах.
Ее обугленная тушка
На птичек наводила страх.

She was old

Who knows if she planned this ending
But she was old and the voltage - high
She burned so fast the sound was rending
The birds were scared - what a way to die
 
Thanks!
