The Cold War

I know I haven’t posted anything up in a while. Life has been busy. However, for some strange reason, I ended up composing a poem on the Cold War during French class the other day… Here’s a transcript of my literary brain matter splayed on the whiteboard:

Lack of order,
fear in life.
Communist rule,
caused nothing but strife.

Spy satellites,
covert planes,
took photos of
Russia’s supply trains.

McCarthy’s raids
filled people with scare.
The paranoia often became
too much to bear.

Weapons development
grew much too fast.
Mutually Assured Destruction
made sure the world could last.

Finally in the end,
the Berlin Wall fell.
It was communism’s last breath,
it rang its last bell.
