“Good Morning, 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!)
And turn ’em over to the people who work.
Rule and run ’em for us people who work.
Langston Hughes, 1934
