Behold the Cuban Revolution

Agent of the Special Brigade of the Ministry of the Interior on July 11, during the repressed protests in Cuba. (EFE)

The Cuban people are tired
of a regime so repressive,
cruel, controlling, obsessive…
The whole nation has been mired
by a clown nobody hired:
a buffoon whose greatest feat
is his mastery of deceit,
to our dismay and confusion.
Come, behold the Revolution,
it kills with a rumba beat!
