Rebuke to a cloud in trousers


You volunteered to write a Bolshevik “ABC”

For Red Army soldiers

At the front

Two million literate peasants

—for the Revolution

Here is how they learned their “Ts”:

“Flowers (tsvety) smell sweet in the evening

Tsar Nicholas loved them very much.”


You wanted to make the Tsar


But we want to follow men

Who smell flowers in the evening

Did Lenin smell flowers?

He could only smell blood

It’s not “bourgeois”

To walk on the corpse

Of Russia
