How grand, the vinalon fabric pours out like a waterfall

How grand, the Juche iron glows like a fiery sunrise

My socialist homeland overflows with joy

Ooh it’s good, ah it’s good

The day of living well draws nigh

How grand socialism is!
--Verse from a current North Korean song translated by B.R. Myers, Ri Myong-Su and Ri Pyong-Jo in the New York Times.
