|Cultural Hegemony : Voices in the Margins by Mark Murphy||< back : index : next >|
Farewell, Leon Lvovich
"Together with our boy has died everything
What terrible suspicions come to us in the dark? Sedov
No more will he ride the Moscow streetcars of his youth.
He has gone to join his brother, Sergei and his sisters, Zinaida
For three days, his mother and father mourn in the darkness
Not until Stalin has been consigned to that chamber of horrors
What dreams may still abound, lie in the victory of the Fourth
* Thermidor is that moment in the development of a revolution when the masses begin to withdraw from active intervention in history and the original leadership of the revolution is replaced by a conservative bureaucracy.
