SPIRIT OF REVOLT.


               I don't know the poet, but I pay homage to him/her, and I can't remember where I got the poem, but I like it very much, it captures the spirit of revolt and the determination of the ordinary people. The title is my own idea as it didn't have a title when I copied it away back. 

WE ARE THE PEOPLE.

If You Beat Us, We Will Revive ourselves.
If You Suppress us, We Will Arise Again.
If You Defeat Our occupation, Of Streets We built,
We Will Occupy Our Jobs, And Our Communities.
You Cannot Destroy Us, For We Are,
Manifest, The IDEA That You Created.
You
Created Us With Your Arrogance.
You
Created Us With Your Exploitation.
You
Created Us With Your Prejudice And Your Greed.
You Created us with Your destruction
Of The World We love.
Your
Ill-considered Occupations
Begat And Inspired Our Occupations.
You
Have Sown The Seeds Of Dissent.
We Grow Like Wildfire,
And We Bring Forth The Whirlwind.
Look To Your Barricades, Your Badged Lackeys,
Your Fawning Courts, Your Corrupt Officials,
Your Long held Illusions Of Divine Right.
None Of These Matter, You’ve Earned Defeat,
And You Will Take The Fall.
We are The people, Newly Awakened.
