A chant of freedom

Here is something I wrote yesterday.

You start with joie de vivre

In it you explore

Then the serpents awake

Serpentine forces excited

Now we’re in a factory

Made to be a sheep

Made to suffer mediocrity

In culture and in life

 

In my fierce glance I see a world

Bent on mechanical order, depleting life

Denying power, freedom, justice, free will

Brilliance, truth, life in hiding

And human strength denied

It’s ready to burn

 

Take!

Awake!

Fight!

Live!

Refuse emptiness

Reject a mediocre life

Resist oppression

Light the fires and sound the drums!

Power will awake

And there will again be freedom

The sacred flame

Never again will be forgotten
