OF ALL THAT I SAW + Italian Translation + Description
[As requested, I provided both Italian translation and description!]
“Of all that I saw” refers in broad terms to what negative the author could perceive in India and wherever people suffer the effects of Late Capitalism, among which figure: poverty, exploitation, ideology, lack of real freedom of the press and the general confusion of the world’s proletarian movements. The poem ends with an optimistic message, as the author sees the overcoming of capitalist contradictions as a potential and feasible reality. The human growing care and the sense of horror of genuine human beings — produced by the material violation of the people’s objective human needs — would contribute to move history and bring a material change.
OF ALL THAT I SAW
Of all that I saw
Haven’t missed any soul
Whoever is right
Is trapped in my mind.
With my “eyes”
unmasking their televised lies.
There is no compromise,
