The Dream of Two Swarthy Ladies

The Dream of Two Swarthy Ladies

Two ladies are sleeping,
Although, no
No they are not,
Although, no
Of course they are,
Sleeping and seeing a dream

How Ivan walked into the door,
And following Ivan was the house manager
Carrying a volume of Tolstoy’s book
“War and Peace”, the second part…

Although no, not at all
Tolstoy walked in and took his coat off,
Off he took his galosh and boots,
‘Help me, Van’ya!’ – shouted he
So Van’ya grabbed an axe
And bam he hit Tolstoy on the head
Tolstoy fell. What a shame!
And all the Russian literature now rests in the chamber pot

Original

*Сон двух черномазых дам*

Две дамы спят, а впрочем нет,
не спят они, а впрочем нет,
конечно спят и видят сон,
как будто в дверь вошел Иван,
а за Иваном управдом,
держа в руках Толстого том

«Война и мир», вторая часть…
А впрочем нет, совсем не то,
вошёл Толстой и снял пальто,
калоши снял и сапоги
и крикнул: Ванька, помоги!
Тогда Иван схватил топор
и трах Толстого по башке.
Толстой упал. Какой позор!
И вся литература русская в ночном горшке.

19 августа 1936
