Poems of Thobile Maso


A poem by Thobile Maso©2002 Thobile Maso

Class composition of the day
Political nature of the day
Source of this day
Reduced to position of simple agents

Oh! What a day- Keep on Marching

Special arm of the service
It is only an incipient of power
Why fogging the minds of workers
Why instilling petty bourgeoisie illusions
Why prolonging its existence
Why the delay of its end

It is the Day dawn– Keep on Marching

Free the people from bourgeoisie influence
It can’t be transformation without transfer of power
It can’t be land lord to Rand lord
It can’t be Global without accountability

Yes! The day must come- keep on marching

Come all agitators
Come all volunteers
Smash bureaucracy
Smash corruptors
Who! is the cog of bureaucratic machine
Who! is the conveying belt of flotsam and jetsam
Unless you want to be, what they want you to be

But! You can’t stop the day- keep on marching
