Communist Propaganda

Loopeng's middle school, Bosheng, recently hosted the regional South African Democratic Teachers' Union (SADTU) meeting. It was a big event, complete with much song and dance.

One song went like this (call and echo):

My mother
(My mother)
Was a kitchen girl
(Was a kitchen girl)

My father
(My father)
Was a garden boy
(Was a garden boy)

That's why
(That's why)
I'm a communist
(I'm a communist)

Most people actually pronounce "communist" as "commonist". I believe there is a grave misunderstanding among the locals as to what communism actually is.
