Course, 101, History Of The Soviet Union; 2

Too bad for you now called Old Bolsheviks:

the shared dream of the Workers' Paradise
was shattered by Lenin's industrious lies.
The Party changed---as Soviet politics

made Moscow a clown town, stage of a farce,
at which the whole world sneers, and, laughing, sticks
its mockery up in Joe Stalin's arse---
that constipated and self-righteous hole
into a body that lacks any soul.

The Show Trials now begin:  nor will have closed
until a single verdict, presupposed,

Guilty!, will be announced, as gavels fall,
preventing any clemency to stall
the bullet, for each of you, through the skull---
too bad for you, now dead Old Bolsheviks.
