Religion, is the opiate of the masses;
Karl Marx: ended the struggle of the classes.
He is enemy to many; and Buddha to some;
He would influence, many leaders to come.
The world he envisioned, almost came true;
From his thoughts, communism grew.
His ideas at the time, were very funny;
Imagine a world, without any money!
Marx was intelligent, and extremely wise;
Workers of the world, he told them to rise!
Slowly, his concepts began to spread;
His works, are among the most widely read.
Marx’s utopia, would never arrive;
Some, however, wanted to revive,
And put to the test, his socialist plan;
Only a century, would his legacy span.
An avid atheist; he was against theism;
A philosopher, who created socialism.
On his deathbed, when asked for a word;
He said a sentence, the last thing ever heard.
It was to get something, out of his endless strife;
“Last words are for people, who haven’t said anything in life.”
