No More Communists To Kick Around Anymore

Rating: 3.7

Those old communists – the ones in the
triumphant revolutionary posters with
broad shoulders and eyes on the horizon
where the sun is rising on a better world,
Those old communists – the ones rolling
across the landscape in full revolutionary zeal
with bayonets and bullets and little red books,
Those old communists with thick glasses
and shifty eyes and fingers on the button, those
vodka-swilling gulag-operating identity-erasing

I'm one of those godless, Sputnik-launching shoe-pounding refusenik-persecuting demons... oh how I miss the persecution. This one is going into my faves. Great, great write, tovarisch! Masha

This one goes in my favorites column. I want to shout hooray...not just because that brand of communists is gone, but because you used such an amazing collection of words to desribe them. Didn't you almost choke on your tongue? This is a wonderful satire of a frightening time for America then...and I wonder what you might right in about forty years about this time period of terrorists. Great job, Michael! Raynette
