In the depths of night on the Catalonia land,
There breeds an army on the stateless sand. 
Warning the Franco forces to enter if they dare, 
Knowing that this is different, a workers revolt.
Adamantly opposing the very policies they withhold,
Standing in the front lines, ready & stout. 
A debacle has emerged between the state & them, 
A time of revolution, supported by 10 million. 
Behind the scenes, there lays an agrarian success, 
The commune of the people, a libertarian's dream.
For three years straight the people gathered together
As the war waged on, though people were before the profit.
A territory run by vouchers, employment given to all, 
A society of equals, an equal society. 
The liberated zones of the citizenry rule, 
A system of true justice, bureaucracy was a myth.
Even though they were eventually defeated, 
And their system dwells only in their memories.
The struggle will still move on in the hearts of the people. 
A dream that shall never be forgotten. 
This was truth; 
This was justice; 
This was freedom;
This was Anarchy.
Long live, Comrades. 
For it will become reality once again.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
