Socialism Is The Future

A poem by Thobile Maso©2002 Thobile Maso

Lies they have sneezed
Truth they have killed
Undertakers wait and confuse
Life is living bread is shared
Socialism is the future
They poison the water in order to kill the fish
They speak like saints and act like devils
They preach democracy and act like bureaucrats
The little island, the universal obsession
Threatens no one but is under siege
Socialism is the future
The blows of reactionaries are showering like hail
Why you shrink like rabbits in the storm
The final goal is yet to come
The victory is certain each one teach one
Socialism is the future
Declaration of point of departure
the aim is not dispute
The action is argument of means to the end
Struggle is victory
Guided revolution is humanity
Socialism is the future
Let the means to turn the tides
From Africa, Cuba to Russia
Keep the fire on
The world is full of misery
Socialism is the future
Build it now! Build it now!
