Into the world of diversity
Che and Fidel 
were a rare Communist pair
that could beat
three of a capitalist kind
In the battle so far
Cuba is the clear winner
battling above its weight class
a beacon of freedom from
in a mostly miserable semi
hemisphere of freedom too

and the strip mall architects are salivating
its going to be Fulgencio Batista all over again
while the Cuban people
look around at what they got
and what they lost
and weigh in
somewhat starved
but very much alive
after 50 years in a
bomb shelter
