Liberty Had Che Guevara in a Headlock

Liberty had Che Guevara in a headlock
And standing on Stalin's face 
she calmly said
"The goal of revolution 
is merely to overcome apathy"

Marx got a dirty look 
squirming in his seat 
"The goal is that the people 
are aware of injustice"
Mao's unconvincing grin remained 
through a muffled cough

"The great weapons: 
satire and unpassioned truth"
Marat doodled as she warned
"Fanaticism is blind passion 
and can barely be trusted in a frenzy"
Gandhi cleaned his glasses and smiled polite  

"Hatred is not 
what freedom is about!"
she screamed at 
an uncomfortable Bolshevik  
"Revenge never set anyone free!"
Pancho Villa's mustache was 
not big enough to hide a snicker

And Liberty herself laughed 
when she realized 
she had been baring one breast and 
why the boys 
were paying attention
