The Rape of a Revolution

The Rape of a Revolution

A dry, cold winter day…
Gusting winds...
Dust and desolation…
Dejection and rejection...
Segregation and desperation …
Lifeless life…

A revolution ignited…
Spreading like a rampant fire…
Toppling the tyrants…
To avenge the long years of oppression.
How we heaved that sigh of relief!
How we celebrated!
How we jubilated!
Free at last!
Free at last!

Then,
From a dark mysterious cave,
Where only primitive men did once dwell,
Burst herds of somber monsters,
Packs of wolves and hyenas,
Flocks of ravens and vultures,
Gluttonous and wild,
Brandishing fangs and claws,
Vowing with spite and rage
To slay our dreams,
Massacre our life
And rape the revolution...
