The Comrade
By Lee Wilson Dodd
CALL me friend or foe,
  Little I care!
I go with all who go
  Daring to dare.
I am the force,        5
  I am the fire,
I am the secret source
  Of desire.
I am the urge,
  The spur and thong:        10
Moon of the tides that surge
  Into song!
Call me friend or foe,
  Little care I,
I go with all who go        15
  Singing to die.
Call me friend or foe …
  Taking to give,
I go with all who go
  Dying to live.        20
