A Call For Revolution - Poem by Vivek Tiwari

Be brave, be valiant, be all violent
Prided heads and chest widened
O brothers! O youths! O worthy sons!
O sisters! O daughters! O wives of nation!
O saints! O monks! o religion profound!
Hold the swords and wield them around
Hold the weapons deathly and terrible
All firearms, all bombs and cannons. [1]

Turn them all to the heart of Anarchy
And let them burst and blast at might
To rid this nation from bleeding afflictions
To rid her from her ulcerous plight. [2]

The faith, the peace you brag so proud
The preachings, the gospels you deliver about
All shall be a waste cacophony
When monsters shall have their absolute ceremony. [3]

Don`t be dumb driven slave of brutality
No sin to crush the Devil`s cruelty
That like the Satan betrays the people
To fill them with hatred against God`s decision. [4]

If gods of peace don`t listen the voice
To set at accord virtue and vice
Be yourself devoid all prayers
Put all these wasteful ceremonies to fire. [5]

Let you` echo of thundering sound
Be heard as sound of Change profound
Let your fury speak your weapons
Crackling guns and blasting bombs. [6]

Put to death, to the heap of slain
To those dare tame your mighty marching
You daughters! You sisters! You wives of nation!
Be Durga, be Kali to bring revolution. [7]

Fight against your sole degradation
Fight against your plighted violence
Stand against the ravishing strides
Revolt in wrath against malice` molestation. [8]

Monsters young or monsters old
Shall be monsters
So put them early to the edge of sword.
Their growth shall ever but monsters breed
That shall endanger the human gentry
As by and by they flourish their creed. [9]

Goodly convictions are falling apart
Centre is playing the devilish part
Throns and crowns the worst with honour
The best are crushed as things of discard. [10]

Cheat, deceit, betrayal and flirt
Rape, seduction and malice molestation
Are so well uprising, so well surviving
Flourishing and blooming under sole protection. [11]

Rise straight and hold upright
Move dare dominent, trampling the fright
From the slumber of slavery awake
From bonds be free, be not afraid. [12]

Stand for Self,
For your sons and daughters sake
Against all oppressions
Stand in the battle like Yama`s image
Untamed amid the Devil`s numbers
In the kindling of dire revolution
Like in true mutineer`s rage. [13]

To set all things goodly at accord
To help stand and walk the trodden and discard
To welcome the dawn of new transition
Of Peace, of Pride of Safe-Region. [14]


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is another of my revolutionary poem wherein the sense of batter against all evil is expressed.
In the second stanza the `heart of anarchy` refers to the centre where the vices and evils get their support i.e. the capital and the central government. The last 2 lines of forth stanza refer to Miltion`s Paradise Lost when Satan tries to deceive Adam and Eve by filling them against God.
The 9th stanza refers recent Delhi rape case(s) wherein the girl was so brutally ravished and the young one of the brutes was released on the basis of being a little young yet he was the most devilish.
Over all I `ve tried here to invoke the people including all men and women to stand against all evils and voices any how even if the revolution requires it must be.
