The Revolution Grows

John W. Leys

Its coming, you can smell it in the air,
For working people the system isn’t fair,
Angry voices chanting out across the land,
Citizens drawing lines in the sand.
All you lofty heads of state,
Think you’re the masters of our fate,
You hear, but you don’t really understand
How your constituents struggle through their lives,
Each day cutting their feet just like knives,
Theyno longerhave any hope,
‘cept at the end of a suicide rope,
Which is why the revolution thrives.

Its out there marching in the streets,
Making plans from those golden Senate seats
To change a system that’s grown so ill,
Though its heart is steady beating still,
Only we are the masters of our fate,
Not those self-elected heads of state,
Drowning in their own disgusting swill,
While people are busy planting seeds,
Hands are dirtied pulling up the weeds,
Kept apart, they fear our power,

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
