"Could Stalin have been a poet instead of a tyrant?," from Russia Today, is a very interesting piece on how Joseph Stalin went from being a rising poetic star to a Bolshevik leader. Of special interest is how Stalin's poetry may have helped him rise to be the leader of a nation.

With that story in mind, it is not recommended that you use poetry as a platform for political gain (or to stage robberies, for that matter). Poetry should always be kept separate of any such evil doing.
