    Langston Hughes’s Poem ‘Goodbye, Christ’ Examined in Depth at Religion&Politics

    • Stacy McMinn

      Democracy will not comeToday, this yearNor everThrough compromise and fear. I have as much rightAs the other fellow hasTo standOn my two feetAnd own the land. I tire so of hearing people say,Let things take their course.Tomorrow is another day.I do not need my freedom when I’m dead.I cannot live on tomorrow’s bread. FreedomIs a strong seedPlantedIn a great need. I live here, too.I want freedomJust as you. LANGSTON HUGHES, Democracy, 1949
