The Tree of the World

Seeds germinated
Into plants and trees
With buds, flowers and fruits

From times immemorial

But …
Two centuries ago,
A seed sprouted
Into a special plant and a huge tree
Engulfing the world
With new buds, novel flowers
Extraordinary fruits …

That tree inspired millions
To deviate from traditions
Educate in dialectics
And materialism
And communism …

That tree was Marx
Who, with his friend Engels
Explained philosophy to the people
And promoted peoples’ philosophy
Spreading buds, flowers and fruits
Of socialism as a universal tool
For emancipation of masses
