History in the making?

History in the making?

A Poem by Poeticpiers

a protest poem


History in the making.


The time has come to change the rules.

The powers that be think we are fools

Though they will find to their dismay.

It isn’t true and they will pay


The penalties long overdue.

The people have the power to

demand and to enforce.

A change to the existing laws.


Which seem to be designed to

 Benefit only the rich few

Who think they are above the law

They see themselves as superior..


The peoples will is paramount

and we will call you to account.

Exposing your dishonesty

Publically for all to see.


The boot is on the other foot.

We will divest you of your loot.

Ill gotten gains you have amassed.

Your unfair rule will be overcast.


Look round the world and you will see

A demand for democracy.

The people’s voice must be obeyed

The peoples will can’t be gainsaid.



The fat cats and the bankers must

Recognise they have to adjust.

The way they think and how they act.

Accept as an established fact.


The winds of change have reached gale force.

The time has come for a change of course.

You’ve had your own way far too long

It’s time to sing a different song.


The once silent majority.

Have spoken with authority.

You can’t ignore the peoples will

But if you try you will foot the bill.


Rebellion is in the air.

With people rising everywhere.
You can’t afford to make mistakes

 A single spark is all it takes.

I wish I knew the right site to post this on. This is the best I've read to date. You have het the nail on the head. I just wish someone would hear this and do something about our real problems.

Man oh man have you got that right
The time has come to stand and fight
We'll use another currency to light
The flames of freedom
