The Bloodstained Hammer and Sickle

The Blood Stain


There’s a stain upon the wall outside,

It seems of human blood;

I try to wipe away the mark,

And see it gone for good.


The blot is on the wall of man,

It cannot be erased;

When evil rears its monstrous head;

Its common man who pays.


This blemish lives as blemish kills,

The stigma shames mankind;

But we shall ever rise above,

The base and cruel kind.
