Understanding – a poem

May 3, 2017 - 08:41 -- Admin


I do not understand Marx
In all his volumes
I do not understand Hegel
Lukacs loses me
Totally some might say

And yet I know the struggle
Class against class
Them and us
The value that is exploitation

Enough of sly references!
Our side is my essence
A man of emotions,
Of guesses at life
Watering the strife
To negate the hate
And blossom the love

The falling leaf – a poem

The falling leaf

It is May Day
There are no workers
Marching past
An old man sits next to me
My old man
Waiting, at last
To be free

This is your freedom, Dad
It lives here now
This is your freedom, Dad
It lives in you now
It is you
You know how

Let us walk quietly
And look for things lost
Today and yesterday
That is my choice
It is yours too
At least for the moment
