Communism II

Individual crimes,
layered with small scale massacres,
is the game of the communist manicure:

Expel the dissidents,
lock down the borders,
sever communication
for national sedation.

Freedom of speech
and political treats
are laced with communist speak;
     do as I say,
     not as I do,
     or face the terror of the communism zoo;

A boot to the throat,
a gun to the head,
or hung by your finger and left for dead
     … is the peaceful pursuit that is communist led.
