REVOLUTION FOR TRANSITION
Turning and turning in the Anarchy`gyre
Goodness drowned in deep its mire,
Cheat` deceit, betrayal and flirt
Are ingredients of Monarchy`s heart.
Men in power lack moral dignities
Corruption and oppression their sole duties,
Honest hands are broken violent
Goodly voices are suppressed silent.
Toys of delicacy are gone off the fairs
Cruelty and brutality are sold at throw-fares,
Those that humble are surely cheated
Fakes everywhere are warmly greeted.
Sole self empowerment is the Power`s aim
Common motives are subject to disdain.
But patient Patience` patience is broken
Impatience fury is giving its token-
Surely a great revolution is at hand
Surely a great Transition is at hand.
Surely the courageous hearts are willed
To way the revolution, passion filled,
Surely they provoke the rise of a wave
To swallow Humanity-hunters of their caves.
