Linked In - or Not?

Gosh, what you learn when you surf the Net:
Past battles, floods, balloon flights - set
In a world long gone, when links were few
Many months before the news got through...

Among the arcane facts I scroll
Two names pop up; each play a role
Which exceeds their origins by far
Each in his way, a troubled star …

Both Librans - 7th October boys
Heinrich Himmler, a big Nazi noise
Who died before Putin was born
In a Soviet Union crushed and torn

By the trauma of six years of war
When an Iron Curtain hit the floor...
D├ętente and Gorbachev to come
Ere Vladimir was Number One.

These Astro-twins have marked our lives
Destinies in another guise
So was their birth date a main cause?
Astrology still gives me pause ...
