A hundred years ago emerged a nation
Whose leaders with the devil made a pact
To reenact the Genesis creation,
Except with God omitted from the act.
For God turned out to be an evil fool
Whose plan could never save humanity,
But communism gave these men the tool
By which they’d make God’s children truly free.
By politics correcting God’s cruel errors,
They sought by force to make us free and equal.
Yet notwithstanding all their bloody terrors,
The world still waits to see the promised sequel.
This paradox these killers failed to fix:
Equality and liberty don’t mix.
