One in the Same

A Free Verse Poem on History

Kevin Saitta
Jan 15 · 1 min read

1920 and 2015,
Methods were used
To cause the extreme.

Violence and terror
Reigning the streets free,
But not from the people
Living among the seas.

For in the 20’s Lenin ran free,
But in the 21st century,
The West reigns supreme.

Same policies,
Same political disease.
The only difference,
The implementation of ideas.

One stained blue,
With fifty shades of red.
The other — an Eastern green light,
Where all were left for dead.
