A Fable: The Soviet Priest



Stalin dreamed of being a priest,

hoping with discipline and nerve,

to redeem the world for Jesus Christ,

a realist, he soon saw,

the church aligned with the rich and the corrupt,

saw the job impossible, 

with only faith,

his dreams broken,

he vowed revenge,

searching another way,

hoping to lead a movement to free the peasants,

and the poor,

from their overlords,

the rich and corrupt,

his struggles helped free a nation,

and win a war,

but hated for his success,

by the rich and the corrupt,

not trusted by allies,

they lied about him,

again and again,

until paranoid,

a monster he became,

killing and torture,

only pleasant games,

the same as for the rich and the corrupt,


a Soviet priest,


the living, breathing embodiment of the rich and the corrupt,

yet proclaimed their exact opposite,

down through history,

such is the power,

of the rich and the corrupt.
