You are right, dude! Am I bad! He was not a communist, just a bad poet. I read a couple of his poems, and they didn't float my boat. here is one example:
I won't be nasty anymore,
I will choose my means and enemies with care.
Bye-bye Sofia, I am going back to nature!
In Kurilo, I have a nice little houseвЂ”
I will mend the old fence,
and live there quietly, invisible.
In the winter, I will meditate.
In the summer, I will raise . . .
What will I raise?
Only snakes dart in the weeds.
I will raise snakes
instead of carrier pigeons.
You can achieve anything with goodness.
They say that snakes become very attached
to their masters.
I will send them
as a small favor
to my enemies.
The other poem was even worse.
It is the opposite, moron. Chek out the below link before showning your ignorance.
Konstantin Pavlov? Never heard of him. What did he write? Love songs about peasants, villages, and working class heroes? Any great poet during communist times had to be a communist to be allowed to be a poet and not a shoe maker. All shoemakers who became communists party members were promoted to poets.
