Soul of Revolution.

Poverty You started by creating poverty Making distinctions Among members of the community As though we were not a common soul. We became friendly with our neighbours On seeing you madly looking for gold, We let our soul go straight To face no food today, no water, no house, just nothing, Abuses of the privileged. Silences. Evil doing its round. Anvil. So we are not a common soul, not again, That’s what you rage your mind with all day, For we have always been to whom You tried to conceal or disguise the truth. We have always been who shouted Off wi''em, Off wi''em, Off wi''em. Rotten soul You announced you had to separate From revolutionaries, Because it was not convenient to you, Because your goal was different, And this way you left us all That if we laugh faultless it bothers you. The one who does not eat This one does not let others eat. These and the other insults of the same kind, Unproper of well-minded people, Your tongues have pronounced, Do not speak well to whom well listens. You joined the arrogants Sons of a bitch them all, You spoke to them As if you together made a team. You are guilty of this suffering, Of this goodness sense That moves us to take the action To extinguish privilege. When revolutions did not succeed It has always been your fault, Cheating soldiers and people with no party Of the two there are. We say you have a rotten soul Because you tolerated poverty, Even you promoted misery While trying to be treated as Lords. We preached happiness, Main reason of philosophy. Holding the pyramid of richness When we run in the streets together, We knew from the very start You were not with us after all. While you handed out your stories About comedy of the living, You were not with us after all. Ask wherever what has happened When you had the power And you increased the population Of people with nothing, simply poor. You were not with us after all. We heard you saying you were pacifists, But it was expected another thing And you kept on holding The pyramid of richness. Now you cannot say you have not, You wore similar and stood well visible Not to be hit by the policemen Who knew about your agreement with devil. We knew form the start. As if it was a longing of yours We defend what we have gone on learning, While you were holding the pyramid of richness. Nobody must forget when one is in debt, Nobody must forget when you didn’t play fair. In the meanwhile We never counted on you In our celebrations. We left it very clear by our opinions About your arrogance and emptiness. Better not come to make cloudy The quietness of good moments, Those we always denied to you Those you will already not have. For we are expected to start, Filled with pride in the meanwhile, At last free from the dirt and ugly With which our dreams you wanted to frustrate. Better run tomorrow to first line To fight against your well-done enemies These I am telling you so much about These longing not to lend you a hand. Revolution We were one to another, Nothing to take advantage one from another, Most of us at least, Not enduring this could happen. We have seen them writing conditions For them to be treated like Lords, Their gestures were eloquent Their grand manners disgusting. Nobody should act like this, Nobody accepts it so innocently. Voracious worms never satisfied Brought wars, famines and refugees, And made life difficult In places especially built. Loathed and detested by whom History sees. How well we can see You cannot hide from where you are. Laugh true we shall not be nicely, Laugh too false we shall be. We were not happy Seeing worms as Lords, We were living waiting revolution, We knew it would be some day. We shall be together We shan’t let evil come. We like it happiness spreads We like it no privilege. Here we stand for equality By force to oblige the virtue to empire. The Moon The Moon obeys us, She has come in our aid. Conscience’s level has arisen, As it was expected, To a higher rank of thought And now we ask for what is ours, Our belongings on earth: Land, Place, Wisdom, Hands. I shall bring nearer your light To get whiter and bluer To find peace and good staying. How well we have done In waiting Doomsday all this time, So many prophets have dreamt and told us about. We have given nothing To those who deserved nothing Too well we could have seen them Believing they could get gold. Now we can smile openly And talk about our struggles, So long perused by many, At last to have much to do For each other. We shall go to our places now, Tomorrow we shall be together again, For Doomsday is followed by days Of justice and order imposed, Days of joy and effort Longed for by us all, We shall be open-hearts Proudly forever. And I will say: Thanks Moon, You guided us always We have lost ourselves on you We shall be loving you forever. More yet: You are Love in heavens All women and men venerate you. Eternal bliss to whom Never to peoples disdained. Madrid, 19 April 2015

Better to stay true to yourself and to your principles. Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. Peace to you.
