Last week, Poet Sergei Mikhalkov (coauthor of the Soviet national anthem) lyrically followed up Stalin's announcement of an atom bomb explosion by writing a new soldiers' marching song:
We've just made a trial of our strength, From our heartswonderful, successful! There, where necessary, it exploded! We are satisfied with the resultThe Soviet atom is not so bad!
As soon as the foreign press heard, It raised a worldwide hullabaloo: "Our secret deciphered! The Russians Also have now what only we had! How did Russia dare? How did Truman and Attlee slip up on this?"
That's the thing! Science for all! Just try...
