poem for Fidel's birthday

by Ross Vassilev

Jack and Bobby
tried to assassinate Fidel Castro

Jack and Bobby
got whacked
and today is August 13th
Fidel's 88th birthday

Fidel is one of those men
whose words and deeds
shake the world
bring down thunder and gale
from the sky

and maybe the man
with the long brown beard
and the white dove on his shoulder
still has many years ahead of him

maybe he'll yet spread the revolution
al norte to all the lands
illegally occupied by the Anglos
so that freedom and socialism
may finally flower
over all the lands of the earth

we can only hope.
