ode to Hugo Chavez

by Ross Vassilev

are now
immolating themselves
to protest the poverty
their post-communist rulers
have thrown them into.

they weren't doing that under communism.

I live in the U.S. of A.
the nation that is the greatest enemy of socialism
since the Red Army destroyed Nazi Germnay.

in the U. S. of A.
there is the cult of the soldier

we're supposed to honor the troops
worship them as heroes and demi-gods

let me tell you something:

the troops can go fuck themselves

and the fascist government they fight for

and the corporations that own that government.

let me tell you something else:

in the 21st century
socialism is gonna liberate the world
from you white Anglo pigs
so that the people of the world
will finally live in peace and prosperity and decency

and if you don't believe me
remember what Uncle Ho said:

we'll fight one day longer than you will.
