Lines composed on the bicentenary of Bakunin’s birth

Michael Bakunin slept with his clothes on

Michael Bakunin was a man of action
Whose life story reads like a work of fiction.
I recommend Bakunin: The Creative Passion
By Mark Leier (Seven Stories Press, 2009),
Which is not a motion picture
But if it was one
I’d write the novelisation.

Michael Bakunin b. 18.5.1814* – d. 1.7.1876
*by the Russian calendar
