Che Guevara while using the alias Adolfo Mena ...

They attacked lastnight

They burst into the room in a hail of fire

Destroyed all that was ours

and all that used to be theirs

They invaded our lives lastnight

They erupted into our rooms

Spoke words that made no sense to children

Spoke words that made no sense to me

Vox Populi! They screamed,

We’re doing this for the people! They swore,

They killed the life in my house

Did you fuckers forget that I am people too?

Fuck your revolution! It’s nothing but a selfish lie,

you’ll become just like all the others

You’ll be Stalin, Castro, Mugabe and Zuma

There’s no true revolution

No true communism

It’s all human greed

All good ideas gone bad

Did you forget Che?

Is he the symbol of capatilism today?

Or did Che forget himself?
