They asked me again: “Do you like the NEP?” – “love,- I answered,- when it is not absurd”

Many comrades were hanged nose.
– drop it, companions!
Not very smart, sir.
To the arena!
Go fight the merchants!
It is necessary to beat the scores to learn.
Let be “seriously and for a long time”,
but there,
ahead,
may a new October happen.
The proletarian is not nice to the bourgeois from Adam.
But before I was afraid –
no matter how dropped;
rude, of course,
but moderately rude –
and that
revolutions will not come true after.
Yes and that
in October
proletarian need
from under their belly-load –
broke through
and drove_a_la aspen stake
round the world their belly.
And so,
Party,
Emcheka nursed,
creepy thing yesterday –
three-story “NEP” hooting now for us:
“Guess what, stuffed cabbage!
caught, companions!”
Against them
engineering and accounting numbers
don't bother, out with a rifle.
Ihnim blow-out arithmetic –
clenching his teeth
and hating.
The bourgeois Lorenzo was magnificent.
Except that
will be very upset with champagne –
will take
and throw out his knees:
nose
– but only! –
smear with mustard.
Yes and that
in October
proletarian need,
clutching them in a fist to a crunch, –
announced:
“I will not be in lackeys!”
Today,
hungry themselves,
opening doors for them “Grotesque”,
know –
all of us
mustard,
sauces
grease first:
“NEP” – they say.
You don't like having a smeared face?
And me – too.
I don't like it, I do not like,
and the devil only knows,
how to deal with them.
Earlier
It was a bourgeois
and greasy
and fat,
tore a hundred – a hundred,
for a thousand – thousand.
But,
v “Merilyzah” you
and coat-s,
and nails,
and boots.
Yes and that
in October
proletarian need
asked:
“Get out if you please!”
And now the bourgeoisie!
What does she do?
No boots for you,
no chintz,
not a nail!
She is –
makes an elephant out of a fly
and after
sells ivory.
Don't like the production of elephant bone?
Products in_a_če!
And so sit and “noble” torment –
nothing will come of it.
Let be
from the thoughts of the huckster
wrinkles – moat.
Take the merchant's experience into your brain!
we
still
we will hear from countries of the worlds
revolutions joyful stomp.
[1922]
