The People's Revolution

The People's Revolution

A Poem by BlakPrince

leaders are accountable to you and I


We call for a worldwide revolutionary

movement against all elected leaders, corrupt,

out of touch with the people. It's necessary

just as cruel crippling cancer cells need to be cut

quickly out of the body for its full motion.

May the people rise for a revolution!

This is a revolution of pure soul and mind;

no secret societies, agendas, guns or knives;

just God's truth saying the globe belongs to all Mankind,

and not the property of masons building lies

for a new world order of fascist dominion.

May the people rise for a revolution!

Rich companies misuse our oil, our food, our trees,

our waters, our diamonds, our gold... when we complain,

they finance wars against us on land, air and seas,

as bombs drop and children's songs stop in nuclear rain,

and we pay for their global warming pollution.

May the people rise for a revolution!

Our globe is rich and holds enough food and water

and house space for each human on each country's soil;

so, no armies should cross their borders to murder

Mother Earth's children, victims in these wars for oil,

drowning souls in mass economic migration.

May the people rise for a revolution!

Like hell they made a trail with our blood and bodies,

dead in Hiroshima, Abidjan, Tripoli...

O they make the art of war and blood their hobbies!

But the people's victory will rewrite history

when Mother Earth's children sow and reap peace fruition.

May the people rise for a revolution!

"For killing us," Justice says, "guilty presidents

for miles shall crawl on hot coal mixed with broken glass,

on their knees, toward burial grounds of residents;

and there be received by the deceived angry mass

who'll drag them to the World Court for prosecution."

May the people rise for a revolution!

Dear fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters,

we call on you, we call on you, we call on you

to hold accountable your chosen ministers,

deputies, mayors, kings, queens whose bombs fall on you;

for it is the people's power that makes a nation.

May the people rise for a revolution!

Wow. That was really powerful. I understand exactly where you're coming from. There's a lot of things going on now and it feels like something needs to change. I love how this is worded. Definitely a wake-up call.

The 6 th stanza sounded a little unrealistic to me! I am a big believer of nonviolence philosophy. It is a fact that richest 1% own half of worlds wealth and very few are willing to spend for the benefit of the unfortunate.
When countries tun their backs on its own ethic population and ignores international community pleas to protect its minority', it is hopeless to expect a revolution!
