WE: THE PEOPLE

WE: THE PEOPLE
          for Pablo Neruda
© Farouk Asvat


We: the people
        merge with the green jungle
We: the people
        sprout from the red earth
We: the people
        emerge from the black tar
We: the people
        steam like white bread


We: the people
        are the people
We: the people
        are the strength

We: the people
        carry the struggle
We: the people
        carry the struggle with dignity

We: the people
        struggle for freedom
We: the people
        struggle for food
We: the people
        struggle for life
