Farewell U.S.S.R.

by Chris Sorrenti

Farewell U.S.S.R.
Farewell evil empire

The experiment has ended
Data tallied
Results coming in
Mr. Hyde has been disciplined
Dr. Jekyll on a continental scale
Gulps down a strange new brew
Some would call Democracy
Still others the Fountain of Youth

Boris Yeltsin and I are ordering pizza
With warm thoughts of Stalin freezing in Hell
Thanking Heaven for a shattered wall
Last but not least
Withdrawal from Afghanistan

Never in my wildest fantasies
Could I have dreamed this day come true
Bringing me back to distant childhood
In the midst of Cold War
A naive boy scolded by his mother for saying
"Surely they're human too"
