I Can’t Keep Up

I can’t keep up
with the Cubans
our compatriots
in struggle-solidarity
(lest you forgot)

I can’t keep up
just watching them
boundless of energy
on the dance-floor
(it tires me out)

I can’t keep up
as some of us, too
have grown tired
of building democracy
here down south

I can’t keep up
so Cubans come
to help us

I can’t keep up
can you

Trying to fathom why, Saturday evening, July 12 2008, at the Friends of Cuba Society (FOCUS) welcome for a group of new Cuban Solidarity Workers, here to help remind us just what we struggled for.
