The Art of Marxism: Poetry

Mahmoud Darwish

Poet of Palestinian resistance and Communist

Mahmoud Darwish


Write down!
I am an Arab
You have stolen the orchards of my ancestors
And the land which I cultivated
Along with my children
And you left nothing for us
Except for these rocks ...
So will the State take them
As it has been said?!
