Red star is victory
for the worker is hero
and blood is the cleanser.
So let’s undo culture,
undress the men in suits,
let the pigs wear the farmer’s clothes,
everyone can be poor,
everyone can be scared.
Vote for the winner
or stay home!
Never forget who you hate at all times.
Red star is the answer
to your infection,
to consumerism feeding you.
The collective fills your needs so nicely
because we, the people, will tell you
what you need
when you will need it
what science will save you
why rouge-stained vanilla is the only proper flavor
what is literature
and more importantly, what is evil.
So spread the flyers
your devious little subversive urges placated
give to this apathetic world
the inflection it hasn’t heard in the last five minutes
it refuses to hear, with unconscionable disdain.
Red star is the hottest franchise!
With free sex,
four-day work weeks
unions for all people
and full benefits with no taxes,
Red Star gives you hope.
Put one of those lapel pins on your backpack
tote the red diaries in the subway
piss off somebody new everyday!
Make room on the shelves, new books are written!
The puzzle gets easier to solve
once you can’t discern
red from magenta
red from brick
red from rage running
the posters speak out in straight lines
we march left
cut the grain with the right hands
“Weak will be strong!”
Red star is the best brand around,
so buy it, you stupid fucks!
Your parents don’t want you to have it!
The philosopher’s ointment for society’s burning crotch.
Only a fascist would say otherwise?
Your asshole teachers never talked about it.
Now you’re on your own, looking out the window,
the red star shines out the window of your dormitory room
while the government pays your bills
with hard work someone else does.
Red star babies for red star brothers.
Red star handshakes at red star rallies.
While bearded men speak for hours, the short-haired girls all want brave men
and their hard dicks!
All this fucking for the sake of those who cannot fuck for themselves.
I wipe my ass with your manifesto and substitute my own.
Let’s face it…
How many cuss words and off-color references did it take
to capture your adolescence?
It doesn’t matter.
Red star is it.
Red star on hats.
Red star on tight-fitting T-shirts in Hollywood sidewalk shops.
Red star on lapels at conferences.
It all means the same thing.
This time, the good guys will win, and the bad guys will pay.
Give up your license,
invest your displeasure,
to one choice,
Red star hearts.
Red star nation.
Red star worldwide.
Where everyday gets better.
