The Popular Front

Today,
We take to the road,
Uniting around a common banner.
Pounding concrete with boots,
Trainers,
Sandals,
We raise our fists, words,
These weapons,
Fighting fascism like our
Mothers and fathers and
Grandfathers and grandmothers
Did before us.
Resurrected groups stand in
Fractions
On barricades we built
Together;
Anonymous singing
The Internationale,
The followers of Trotsky and Stalin
Linking arms to hold the line
Amidst the tear gas,
Anarchists tending to the wounded,
Fighters from the Kommando Ulrike Meinhof
Breaking police lines to bring in
Trade unionists and Labour Left,

As the rag tag band of Nazis
Collapse, retreat and are
Routed.
