Also, Mitchel Cohen recites his poem: "Emulating Marx": 


I am becoming more like Marx every day 

My belly is growing, and my beard is turning gray. 

I have no money, and while thus far I have been spared 

The famed boils on my buttocks I have no doubt 

My constipation is but its prelude, and I think about 

French pornography, police, the working class and all the weird 

Formulaic elegies and witches' brews of dubious distinc- 

Tion that Gorbachev et al. are forcing us to drink. 

And woe to those who've sold their souls for trinkets, 

The thrill of market victory, and the agony of deceit. 

I am becoming more like Lenin every day 

Balding, isolated, corpse on display 

For new generations to behold and possibly to spit on! 

Is nothing sacred? Is there no longer room 

To predict the weave of history upon her silent loom?
