As century elapsed since Marx inspired bloodshed,
This vile ideology is back in our midst.
Its progress had been slow, insidious, unnoticed,
It hid and crawled among us under an assumed name.
Its tentacles have spread to schools and institutions,
Polluting minds of children with seeds of doubt and angst.
These malleable minds, so open to corruption,
Are target for recruitment by bitter, hate filled "men".
Yes, Lenin would've smiled enjoying Order's fall,
And Mao oh so proud as young berate the old.
Their aim is revolution as communists of old,
Desire pure destruction, since nothing short will hold.
With history corrupted, and our values sold,
Progressively the ranks with newly converted grow.
The ignorant will march, destroy with happy glee.
Without realizing, they are no longer free.
Republic will survive, if people stand United.
Democracy will breathe with agents of chaos unmasked.
And never on your knees, stand proud and unconquered.
No other way to live, the only way to be.
