Zero On The Czars - Poem by Mason Maestro

Waiting on the pawn of a puppet
Come let's share a cob of maize
Let's raze a glass of an acre
To the end of another dynasty
And to full control that's still imperial
Peter may be Great just was not the material

Moscow’s tossed up- not washed up
The Basileus of Rus relates
As a Bulgarian Czar for many a day
Meet with Emperor Mikhail
Devotion to the Faberge
And their women are tilling
From half a continent away

Revolutionaries split into separate wings
Gradualist Mensheviks and radical Bolsheviks
The unOrthodox vying to install kings
Defiance to the regime grew in ways they’d never seen
And Rasputin’s assassination in late 1916
Did not restore the autocracy's all but lost prestige

In comes Vladimir wiping the socialist slate
A communist party envoy
Leave your freedom at the gate
The train left Lenin at his tomb
It rolled into the throngs of Stalin
The centralized dogma killed the womb
