At the Mausoleum

Greasy beggars chant
before the mausoleum,
hoping for some coins.
~~ ~~ ~~
Who desires to grieve
at Lenin’s mausoleum?
Insidious plan!
~~ ~~ ~~
Poets will reveal
the mausoleum’s meaning,
stirring up the night.

      Don’t you just love the moments when you connect with literature and it connects with you, even if the connection is tenuous? Glad that this little piece was able to take you across the ocean! 😉

  9. The last one.. oh isn’t that were there’s the poets exist.

    the words remains even if the ruin withers
