The Call of Proletarian ___

The Call of Proletarian ___

The Call of Proletarian ___

“I am from among Have-Nots.

But I Have no Notes.

Let’s change the vocabulary of votes!

Let those who Have notes

Be called the Have-Nots

They Have-Not  “ hunger”

They Have- Not “ labour”

They Have- Not “ sweat”

They Have-Not “ Open Toilet.”

Let me be the “Have”

I Have “anomie and alienation.”

I Have “the wrath  of capitalization”

I Have “the suffering of corruption.”

I Have “the curse  of illiteracy and polarization .”

Let me be “ Have

And let them be “Have-Nots.”

  Let us change the vocabulary of votes!!.

 “My fellow proletarian!

  Learn from Animal Farm

 And raise a rebellion !!”

Against bribery and corruption!”

We Have “the power of the population.”
