ORIGINAL VERSION:

PROGNOSIS THAT SWELLS IN MY MIND
beyond cut off roads and intellects
I did not have a chance to say sorry
the door were slammed shut to you
slammed shut under the strict rules
you began to age like a twisted newspaper

perishing in hard – hearted headlines
I wanted to set a dim wish
for something that should go wrong
you would not be that wish
as your door would never close on me
from the paper you became
I am unable to read out anything unkind
you hold a promise
that cleanses me from worries
it’s more than enough (14th May 2015)

The years of totalitarian rule in Czechoslovakia, from 1948 to 1989, were dark and dismal days, indeed. After the 1948 coup, Communist ideology permeated citizens’ lives and dominated all aspects of society. Czechoslovakia’s political decisions were dictated by the Soviet Union, and the country continued to rely on the Soviet Union even during the 1980s. Czechoslovakia was part of the Eastern Bloc and a member of the Warsaw Pact and Comecon. More at: https://www.private-prague-guide.com/article/life-during-the-communist-era-in-czechoslovakia/
