CPUSA Member/ Harlem Renaissance Poet Langston Hughes wrote a workers’ song entitled ” One more ‘S’ in the U. S. A.”


Oh, the bankers they all are planning
For another great big war.
To make them rich from the workers’dead,
That’s all that war is for.
So if you don’t want to see bullets holding sway
Then come on, all you workers,
And join our fight today.


Put one more S in the U.S.A.
To make it Soviet.
One more S in the U.S.A.
Oh, we’ll live to see it yet.
When the land belongs to the farmers
And the factories to the working men —
The U. S. A. when we take control
Will be U. S. S. A. then.
