New Poetry from Lamont Lilly

coup d’état
there can be no peace
until every child
has a hot meal
there can be no treaties
until we sit down
and negotiate the revolution.
not one hostage
shall be released
until you hang those
until those judges
mayors and corrupt officials
are all buried

Lamont Lilly was the 2016 Workers World Party Vice-Presidential Candidate. In 2015 he was an Indy Week “Citizen Award” winner for his activism and journalism. The presented selections are from his forthcoming debut Honor in the Ghetto. Plain but poignant, his poetry directly derives from the marginalized, from the streets of mass struggle, from the Black experience and U.S. South.
