UNTIL LIBERALISM CREATES OBSCURANTISM

UNTIL LIBERALISM CREATES OBSCURANTISM

Until Liberalism creates obscurantism
with vultures, 
in business, in culture
Marxism,
which has never fled,
will be there to suggest us, to shed
mankind Materialism.
Our Future without Communism
is dread..
is the darkest cold night,
the friend you can't sight.
Marxism will make us 'well-read',
no more sad
no more left
to ourselves...
to the ignorance of 'self'...

Until Capital busts with imperial sword thrusts
to then rise again cyclically with its nightly lust
under so many names though with the same  old damn reek
in Kenya, LSE, living off the young Greeks
in peripheral zones,
everywhere,
Marxism will have its red night flares!
As every 'night' has its own structured nightmares,
in peripheral zones,
everywhere...

Though flea-ridden, forbidden, well-hidden, not softened
as there's something terribly rotten
in our planet of slums, of endless shams plotted
the kids and who sweats are forgotten
by slaves of talk shows, of ice-teas, of some cotton!

From Delhi, Lahore
to Santiago and Rome
Karl Marx will come back, with our sores,
tossing and turning underneath his gravestone
Won't come back as the old party prophet
he'll come back as a ghost!
His 'ghost' will torment them, will crash all their rackets
against boss-friendly mires,
cast in slum-friendly fires

until the last fight, the only one left
through the spirit of people like Marx, the only real left.

As the yells of this Hell will get louder,
his ghost will be there with our light
till the last working-hour
of the  most lonely sweatshop in the night.
