Opus 09

Лежит папа на полу,
От крови весь розовый.
Это дети поиграли
в "Павлика Морозова"

Opus 09

The father is lying on the floor,
He is pink because of his blood,
It's the result of children's game,
They've been playing Pavlik Morozov.1
 
  • 1. Pavlik Morozov (1818-1932) was the Soviet schoolboy which wrote a denunciation of his father, and he was killed for that. The Soviet propaganda presented him as a hero. Many monuments to Pavlik Morozov were built in the USSR; and many Soviet streets, collective farms, pioneers' squads, and many other things were called in his name.
