duds

soviet factories produced plenty of attire
to be worn by the whole planet but in fact
even their own population had to wear hungarian sneakers
bulgarian raincoats and mongolian hats
because all soviet industry and agriculture
worked exclusively for totalitarian regimes
of the past and the future and for
extraterrestrial dictatorships
that’s why the aztecs incas and babylonians
let alone the troglodytes knew the hammer
and sickle symbol so well
