Hi Howard:

It was from Brecht's versification and re-writing of the _Communist Manifesto_.

See Darko Suvin's ""On Brecht's 'The Manifesto': Comments for readers
in English" (_Socialism & Democracy_; *available online*).

The quotation is in the article, along with the full citation (Brecht,
_Werke: Grosse Kommentierte Berliner und Frankfurter Ausgabe_,
Suhrkamp & Aufbau V., 1988-2000, 22:1 88-89).

In solidarity, Jerry
