Exposed Reds


The Reds speak and write scholarly
About inequity
And The Struggle
Seemed honorable,
Innocuous and heroic
Until The Struggle becomes a profession,
An economic vehicle for the artists
And politicians
The tools of The Reds are blinding
Stimulative and emotive
Leaving young minds wanting

He was a Red before he criticized one
The priests were Red
Then they prayed
Liberators became
Ethnic cleansers
