2220: Laika burned alive

Laika burned alive [there
overhead] & Soviets lied –

Their apolitical stray was
handed a commission to

Sit – A politburo’s mission
to ire Yanks of no animals

were harmed – [as picture
houses rolled out titles &

in a script a hero killed an
army of Martians – & Elvis

Presley gyrated for Ed] &
Laika’s craft deteriorated

& Cold War men twitched
& an egotist on both sides

fixed a medal on a hero’s
suit [one was not pinned]
