Comrade Stalin, you are a great scientist,

In linguistics, you know a lot,

And I'm a simple Soviet prisoner,

And my comrade is a gray Bryansk wolf.

Yuz Aleshkovsky spent three years in the camp.

He talks about his audience and about characters - heroes of his literary creativity - people who are somehow connected with staying in the zone.
