For poems to be of any use to humanity, they have to be realistically socialist. Songs of Workers' Unions, of Progressive Coalitions, of the Struggling Slaves, and Radical Reds.
Songs that gifted us the Eight-Hour Weekdays, kept us away from what the Administration says, Organized us for the coming days. Songs that Woody wrote, Robeson sung, which Pete Seeger carried well along, and in whom Bob Dylan found much inspirations.
Here are some Protest poetry that Radical Journal brings, so you can spread the songs and let folks sing. -Editor
