     An excerpt from Black Flags by Renzo Novatore, pen name of Italian anarchist Abele Rizieri Ferrari 1890 - 1922.
Black flags in the wind
stained with blood and sun
Black flags in the sun
howling of glory in the wind

    What the war didn’t and couldn’t do, revolution can and must do!

Oh, black flags carried

in a man’s rebellious fist
as he focuses his gaze intensely
beyond the ruling lie
—fluttering in the sun and wind
fluttering in the wind and sun
Victory smiles in the distance!
In the distance—in the distance—in the distance!
In the glory of the sun and wind!
