Yuri, a peasant boy, dreamed of many things…
Food enough to feed myself and family,
Heat to survive the long and brutal winters!
Yuri, a Bolshevik, hoped for many things…
An end to the bloodshed at the front,
The ideas of my hero realized!
Yuri, a Russian, wanted many things…
An outlet for resentment,
A voice in Russia!
