“Good Morning, Revolution,” (weekly poem)

Good Morning, Revolution” 

Listen, Revolution,
We’re buddies, see —
We can take everything:
Factories, arsenals, houses, ships,
Railroads, forests, fields, orchards,
Bus lines, telegraphs, radios,
(Jesus! Raise hell with radios!)
Steel mills, coal mines, oil wells, gas,
All the tools of production,
(Great day in the morning!)
Everything —
And turn ’em over to the people who work.
Rule and run ’em for us people who work.

Langston Hughes, 1934
