Maoage is What Brings Us Together Today

Let’s attack here!
Drive away the mountain gods,
Break down the stone walls sheer
To bring out coal in wads.

Let’s strike here!
Let the Dragon King change his job,
Let hills in river disappear
As we rice paddies rob.

Let the valley open its bosom
To yield 500 jin of oats every year.
Cut down knolls in the name of communism
To make plains everywhere.

Let’s wage war against the great earth!
Let the mountains and rivers surrender under our feet.
March on Nature, tread upon her hearth;
Let’s take over the power of rain, wind, and sleet.

We shall not tolerate a single inch of unused land!
Not a single place harassed by disaster.
Make rice, wheat, corn grow on mountain grand
Beans, peanuts, red gaoling rise from Nature’s plaster.
