Dasha leaves Russia Part 1

The tale of my friend Dasha and her journey to America, split into several parts.

Dasha McGuiness

The ex-communist

was shy to display

her capitalist ways.


They thought she was a savage

when she told them "No more cabbage!

I'd prefer-

a cheeseburger.

And apple pie,

that I can buy.

And not have to wait in long, long lines!"


And so they said "quit Stalin' then.

Abandon us and all your kin.

And when you buy a house one day

save a room for us to stay."

The End
