let’s drink for that

and at dawn
we’ll drink!
we will forget about our past
and temporary present
let’s drink for our future!
(imaginary future though)
let’s drink for that!

we’ll vote a flower pot
for president
and stop old wars
but after
we will start some new ones
let’s drink for that!

we’ll turn to ruble granite pedestals
that our forefathers were standing on
we’ll kick old friends out to the streets
but welcome new ones
our revolutionary vomit will wash away
the dust of outdated values
but won’t leave a clear spot for any new
let’s drink for that!

hurrah! hurrah!
we’ll preach self-sacrifice
and quietly observe a mother stoned
and brothers losing their heads
for our bright future
that our kids will have to build
on a vacuum of our bragging
let’s drink for that!

and in the dusk
we’ll lay our tired heads
on dirty door mats
stained with vomit
and our children
carry us in their hands
to rest in peace
from our ‘heroic’ revolutions
they probably won’t drink for that…
