A Revolution's Coming

There's a Revolution coming,
The boots are on the streets;
It's calling from the graves,
We're stirring from our sleep.

It's possible, but where is the revolution, in which country. The poem makes me think of the Revolutions in France, the USA, Russia and China, and others. They brought about change quickly, but at a huge cost. A thought-provoking poem.
The world needs changes. May they happen for the better.
Perfect timing. The extinction rebellion is making waves as we speak!
I agree with your underlying premise, But their technology is growing ever to hard to overcome. Great poem, great insight. James McLain 🎸

Lovely write with steady flow of words. I thoughtful piece that brings abt reflection.
The bell at four Will sound no more; The chorus chants For a holy war, For salvation In one bleat.... beautiful
To rein in one percent From their lusty heights. Facades of power.... Will tumble to defeat..... // Thanks & Congrats for this song of revolution.
Another commy. How pathetic.
Congratulations on Poem of the day, great piece of work
Francie, I was curious when you wrote this and saw you posted it before Donald Trump’s ascent to power. No matter. This poem still resonates for me. Just last night with friends we talked about Kavanaugh’s ascent to the Supreme Court and the obvious reasons he is unfit for the job. Yes, we need a revolution, but a peaceful one, one that will heal the divisions. I’m reminded in this poem of Cohen’s Democracy is Coming to the USA. -GK
Well done. Makes me think of the 'Second Coming' by Yeats
