The Cold War was not often seen as a subject for poetry - but that didn't stop a popular versifier like Berton Braley (1882 1966). He took a look around at the post-war world and saw plenty subjects that rhymed:

"You'll meet, methinks, a lot of pinks
Whose statements are dogmatic
That Communists are Liberals
And really Democratic;
But when you hear that type of tripe
Keep this fact in your nut
- That Communists are Communists and nothing else but!"

His poem went on for three more stanzas...

The Cold War began in 1945...
