Poems of Thobile Maso

Solidarity Forever

A poem by Thobile Maso©2002 Thobile Maso

I am human being and demoralised
I do things not because I like it to
I do things because I have to
I am separated from the soil and the tools
Chased away from the land law and labour

Solidarity forever
Revolutionary capacity to drive
Many different approaches
Ruler can’t rule the rulings
Deploy your forces in an effective way
Solidarity forever
Mobilise communities mobilise
Mobilise campuses mobilise
Mobilise workers mobilise
Mobilise women mobilise
Solidarity forever
Decolonialisation of mind is education in time
From poverty line to bread line
Let the red flag fly high again
Worker to worker
Country to country
Solidarity forever
Abolish brutality abolish
Abolish barbarism abolish
Abolish cabal-ism abolish
Abolish capitalism abolish
Solidarity forever
Thieves and invaders are suffocating the nation
Global villians are destroying humanity
Vampires are sucking the blood of industrial soldiers
