The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Communists

Communists

by

James Bredin


If there’s one thing I noticed about the communists I met,
They’re pushy and highly intelligent least we forget,
This is the reason they took over half the globe by and large,
By convincing the masses that socialists should be in charge.

They like to spread their communist ideology around,
They’re focused on equality they find it easy to confound,
And the people believe them ‘cause their ideology sounds true,
They might not bother to vote or even bother to review.

But democracy and communism just don’t get along,
Communists stay forever which is democratically wrong,
That’s the part of their ideology they always leave out,
Wouldn’t want the people to know what they’re really about.

It’s too late when the secret police come knocking on the door,
And haul you off to a camp which you may indeed abhor,
A place far away in the woods that’s quite wild and remote,
All traced back to because you didn’t even bother to vote.
