Comrades - Poem


Lives Branded with Zeal
Hearts Bonded with love
Eyes filled with fire
Our goal is the dove

Sold out to others
Give till our end 
We've both seen the masses
Our lives we now lend

We've seen their sorrow
seen their pain, seen their strife
We've witnessed their hunger
seen their souls with no life

We've witnessed the dying
Been horrified by the dead
We've seen the horror
Of capital's endless bloodshed

We are a class
We are considered all cogs
And to the ruling
We are lesser than dogs

Yet to each other 
We are comrades till dead
No class in our presence
Our blood is pure red

We stay united
Till death do us part
locked in the class war
joined at the heart
