I am not a hypocrite, not a Pharisee
And I firmly declare this -
We are ahead of the whole planet
Not only in the field of ballet.

So that the thread is not interrupted,
So as not to be covered with a copper basin.
We drank, we drink and we will drink
Contrary to any decrees.

Due to the absence of roads,
Metaphysical drunkenness
is not a social vice,
but the pathos of the Russian space.

We are alcoholized through and through,
Everything has fermented inside us,
But the famous “maybe”
Never let us down.
