Cuba


Cuba


Cuba is a little land in a heroic role

Its enemies are hollow men, they haven't any soul

They fight as once Goliath fought

Behind a mast-high spear

While Cuba fights as David fought

Without a sign of fear.

Goliath falls as forests fall

There's thunder in the land.

Look at little Cuba now,

Doesn't she look grand!


- Joe Wallace, Canadian Communist activist and poet (1890-1975). Written in Moscow, 1960


Now, more than ever, Cuba needs our solidarity against imperialist blockade and attack.
