Arise, My Fellow Countrymen! (Poem)

It is time to tear down this government, and if not at the polls, then revolution is here. The time is now, not in your children’s future, for us to quell this anarchist government with a show of force on our, the People’s, side!

Arise, My Fellow Countrymen!


We should meet the heat,
Out in the wild street,
If they don’t join us
then them we will beat;

In Capitol land,
They have their own plan,
To enslave us all
and freedom banned;

But I say to rise!
Shout cries to the skies!
And don’t let them try
to change truth to lies;

So, overcome fear,
Let’s approach them near,
And with mighty yell
take back what’s so dear!

This sad scourge must end,
Vileness we must rend,
To pull it down and
its roots to upend;

Arise, my fellows!
Let forth with bellows!
Never again here
government shallow;

Rend it in the streets,
Its end it must meet,
Pulling down leaders
with their cow’rdly feet!

tankermone, my friend, maybe if the people knew who their enemy was they would indeed rise up.

However, unless their military stood with them side by side refusing to work against their own brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, cousins, uncles, aunts, nephews, sons and daughters, grandparents, great grandparents, and friends, there would be little hope of success.
