Kosta (Kocho) Ratsin is one of Macedonia's renowned poets. The poem „Денови“ (Days) from which the excerpts below have been taken, describes the difficult time that blue collar workers have, toiling all of their days for other people's profits. The poem was published in Zagreb in 1939, as part of the collection „Бели мугри“ (White Dawns). The entire collection has been digitized and is available at http://belimugri.digimak.org/.

(стане) си утре порано
(дојде) си вечер подоцна,
наутро радост (понесе)
навечер тага (донесе) –
(се роди) човек – роб (биде)
(се роди) човек – скот (умре),
скотски цел живот (работи)
за други туѓи имоти.

За туѓи бели дворови
(копа) си црни гробови!

За себе само 'ргај си
за себе маки (трга) си –
(нижe) си ѓердан денови
(нижe) си алки ковани,
(нижe) си синџир железен
околу вратот навезен!
