The Betrayal

The Betrayal

Twas down in Barcelona no so long ago
when an anti-fascist popular front
came steppin' through the floor

This countrys' awful tragedy
i' ve learned so terribly well
The colour of its flag was black
it became a fascist hell

The NKVD they dragged them there
into Kobas' torture cells
Trotskyists Militants Anarchists murdered
with a brutality to terrible to tell

Stalins' henchmen then sealed their fate
there was to be no Spanish Revolution here
misleadership betrayal and treachery mixed in with
a dictatorship of fear

The Left it must unite now against these crimes
Unite with no more delay
next time a Workers State will be formed
and a Workers Party will lead the way

The Paranoid Man

paranoid jealousy
overreading all signs
obsessively hunting for hidden knowledge
to control events
endlessly frustrated
in absence of any real mystery
jealousy perpetually bending
the ' evidence 'for its own ends
