Revolution! Revolution! Revolution!

 

Malcolm X quotes

 

 

It would seem that TPTB want to see some sort of re-action from ‘We The People’. Will it be peaceful or will it be violent? I do believe, THEY have decided the course that the next revolution will take. And this is just a little poem to get you in the mood.

The Revolution IS Coming!

How can I be content if my brother is in pain?
I would not turn my back if I saw my sister slain.

The world has had enough and the rich should lose their head.
Those who try and stop us will lie among the dead.

Peaceful, we have tried and it only got us where?
Poor, homeless or dead, they don’t really care.

No corner of the globe should hide these thieves and liars.
Light a billion torches, fry their spying wires.

Rest is for the dead and we have no time to waste.
They must know real fear, they must have a taste.

They have played their hand and took our rights away.
Do you think we’ll get them back if only we will pray?

Stand strong and hold your ground for they cannot kill us all.
Tear down the corporate sign and breach the outer wall.

Progress must be made in one form or another.
The protests, they have squashed and dissent, they try and smother.

Hate has been their tool and we must overcome.
They treat us just like dirt and they tell us we are scum.

You should not run, you should not hide for the stakes are just too high.
And when they come for you, will you fight or will you die?

There comes a time in everyones life when they must make a choice. We have been headed in this direction for some time. Those who initiated this hellish nightmare that is going down have been preparing for this while we were distracted. And now that what is in store for us can no longer be denied, you have a choice to make. You can either go out obediently and quietly or you can make a noise before you go out. Which is it going to be? They are hoping that we will continue to acquiesce to getting our asses handed to us. They are thinking that we have, for too long, been lulled into apathy and complacency and in addition to this, they have been destroying us little by little and weakening our bodies by filling us with poisonous toxins. This was intentional. For those of you who can remember a few decades back, you can remember a time when obesity was not as prevalent as it is today. And we did not need Facebook or Twitter to help us remember what we saw with our very own eyes because back in my day, people actually talked face-to-face with one another. There were no smartphones, nor was there Skype and the like. And I for one, can remember when food tasted good and was good for you, not like this garbage that we spend much more on than we used to and quality is non-existent.

As long as we are alive, we can change things. The obstacles may seem insurmountable but the alternative is not to be endured. If we don’t take a stand, we never will. Anything that comes too easily is not worth having and when you have given something your all and you see the results, you appreciate it more. Just something to think about as you look around and wonder what in the hell happened? This is not how we are supposed to live. Too many people are hooked on drugs to escape the pain of reality and this just should not be. Too many people are imprisoned today and this was not always the case. But you must understand that psychopathic monsters have been in control of us for far too long and it is time to show them that we will not continue to aid in our demise. We will resist. That is why those worms militarized AmeriKKKa and terrorized the rest of the world into submission. They expect the status quo to remain; they expect to continue their reign of terror, brutality, destruction and death.

Those of you who have family members in police departments all across AmeriKKKa, you should be telling your daddy or your spouse or your brother, cousin, uncle, aunt or sister, if they are a cop, that you will be facing them the next time another cop kills an innocent man, woman or child. You should tell them that just because they lost their humanity, it does not mean that you have lost yours. And for those of you who have loved ones in the military, ask them if they would appreciate some general commanding them to send a drone to kill you. Ask them if they were so ordered, would they murder you for standing up to tyranny, racism, brutality and war crimes. You may not want to hear the answer, but you should know all the same, if you don’t already.

We could all play a part to ensure a better future for us all. Most of us have children and we want our children to have a future. They will not if we continue to remain hypnotized by those who would continue to control us if we allow them to. Look into the face of your child. Go outside and watch the children playing together. We used to do that. We were not always looking at skin color. I know I didn’t. When I was a child, I did not play with someone based solely on their skin color, I played with them because they were human, just like me. Just like us all! Why did we, collectively, move away from each other; physically, spiritually and emotionally? If you can answer that question, honestly, then that is a start!

The Revolution IS Coming!

The world has had enough and the rich will lose their head.

Those who try to stop us will lie among the dead.

 

Peaceful, we have tried and it only got us where?

The poor are over here and the poor are over there!

 

No corner of the globe will hide the thieves and liars.

Light a billion torches, fry their spying wires.

 

Rest is for the dead and we have no time to waste.

They must know real fear, they must have a taste.

 

The lords have played their hand and took our rights away.

Do you think we’ll get them back if only we will pray?

 

Stand strong and hold your ground, they cannot kill us all.

Tear down the corporate sign and breach the outer wall.

 

Progress will be made in one form or another.

The protests they have squashed and dissent they try and smother.

 

Hate has been their tool and we shall overcome.

No time to run, no time to hide, the stakes are just too high.

And when they come for you, you must fight or you will die!

Ask yourself this question. Has the ‘ballot’ worked?

The Devolution of Evolution

devolution_n

There are those who say that we must wait for human evolution

and that we are just as wrong if we start a revolution.

Humans have devolved into what you see today.

There are those who glimpse the suffering and they simply turn away.

They care not for the hungry, no tears shed for the sick.

They beat them down and shame them, it usually does the trick.

Must they take another look; no glasses hued in rose

and speak to me of what they see with eyes that do not close.

There is a war throughout the land in one form or another.

We do not love our sister and we hate our foreign brother.

There are those who walk the streets, they have no home at all.

They were sold out by the bankers who never take a fall.

The rich have all the power and the poor are in a bind.

If you fail to see the problem, there is something on your mind.

Or could it be you just won’t see because you would reject

that we have not evolved and are stuck in retrospect.

The ones who see and understand that something must be done

are those who care for all and not just care for one.

If ever we evolve, and there is no sign we have

the future looks too bleak if what we use is salve,

to staunch the flow of blood from those who are in pain

and never hold accountable, the ones who wield the chain.

Alone, we cannot act, we need you all onboard

as this is not a game, and we can ill afford,

to not join in the fray nor start the protest march

nor arm ourselves with nature’s tools and branch out like the larch.

Where once we stood alone, we now stand arm in arm

And those who are the enemy are those who do us harm.

Violence begets violence and this I understand

but power will not yield with just a reprimand.

Those with much to lose will crush us if we try.

They must hear our roar, they must heed our cry.

For peace can never reign without a show of might.

No matter who is wrong, no matter who is right.

WordPress Bloggers To The Rescue!

Dennis gets our morning off with coffee with the homeless.

Jerry keeps the ‘peace’ since the natives here are restless.

 

Skywanderer is busy as she shares just what we do.

Jeff will speak the truth and then he’ll hand the ‘mic’ to you.

 

Tubular’s in the ‘war room’ disguised as someone’s sock,

just waiting for Ms. Courtland to clean somebody’s clock.

 

MisBehaved Woman is doing what she does best,

protesting with a sign ’cause she won’t let it rest.

 

Shainbird on the other hand just wrote what she did see,

a lovely poetry piece and she’s posting it for free.

 

Meanwhile, Skywanderer just tweeted something nice,

to all her many fans who then re-tweeted twice.

 

I. Frederick’s in the room and she’s all in the know.

She tells it like it is, she’s the star of this here show.

 

Shelby Courtland is a wild one, who plays so many roles.

At times she’s rather brazen, at times she’s saving souls.

 

They’re a fine motley crew who will lead the revolution.

Tubular’s on the job, he’ll be the prosecution.

 

Our government’s got to go; it’s no longer for the people.

They give all to the rich but they hate the poor and feeble.

 

We’ll stand for one; we’ll stand for all, this time we’ll play it smart.

We’re going green and going clean; so Tube, you push the cart.

I hope no one who is mentioned gets upset. This is all in fun. It is just my way of thanking those who have stuck with me through all my ups and downs and who are always there to lend a supporting hand.
