( A warning from the grave)
An angry wind whips the trees, tears the leaves,
Claws them down, throws them up,
Then beats them through the air-Enraged,
So angry mobs like storms will come,
Upon the ones who reign ,
Who love, like flies, decay and death-
We know them from their stench,
The miseries they have made-
But what will be, this angry mob,
Of the left, or of the right,
A million Che Guevara’s or Mussolini’s spawn,
Bred in beds of ignorance and lousy with their hate,
Bringing worse upon us still, and with an iron fist?
The storm has come upon us, there’s thunder in the air,
Zola, now is never read, Neruda is reviled,
Saramago showed the Blindness, Sinclair, the Jungle of their kind,
Capital is forgotten and all the truth therein,
Where are they our heroes, when now we need them more?
Mac The Knife is back in power and works in dark of night,
And where are you my comrades, are you on the barricades,
Or wrapped in sad, self-pity, in doubt of what you are,
Caring more for you and yours, and less for us and ours?
An angry wind is coming, so get your selves prepared,
Be warned, and act, my comrades, or end up on your knees.
