February’s satire, “The Debate.”
Enjoy, or not.


The Debate
Inspired by a work of E.F. and a quip of F.E.

stalin and trotsky took the stage
at a staged democrat debate
with agit-prop set to enrage,
demagogue, and manipulate.
stalin shrieked that this time was her turn,
trotsky mumbled, “feel,” nonsense, and “burn,”
as their audience tried to discern
the most marxist candidate.

stalin and trotsky, obdurate,
blathered their bloody marxist swill:
economic'lly illiterate,
but regarded as genius still.
stalin shrieked, “this village needs a mother!”
trotsky mumbled, “all kept by kept brother,”
as each tried to out-marx the other
for their fool electorate.

stalin and trotsky each a side
of a sham, wooden, two-assed coin:
a doomed doctrine where millions died,
and they still demand that all join.
stalin shrieked, “just ends and means of force!”
trotsky mumbled, “fat cat!” hobbyhorse,
as The People debated divorce
should at last at least be tried.
