Poem - At Our Feet

Societal rage is a very real thing. Those in power who forget this are tempting the fates of dramatic change. This has already happened in small ways. The Tea Party has been strange bedfellows with the We are 99% movement. The commonality is a feeling of being disenfranchised and powerless. This may not be the end. A pat on the head by the establishment is eventually felt as a club to the skull. The poem “At Our Feet” is a dire look forward to the end-game that is mob justice.
This poem is in the story line of my poem “Revolution Take Your Soul”. I apologize for this continuing dark theme. The recent events have my mind worried. I see normally kind friends turning to rage. They do so out of a heartfelt concern, but the result is still a smoldering rage that may not be quenched. Poetry is an outlet to understanding this day.

At Our Feet
Poem for Day 064 – 201411226

Look here and see us,
the powerless seek recourse.
There is nothing to discuss.
it is your end we endorse.

Forget your words of law.
We've been without far too long.
Eat your rules
while we loot your house.

Your structures imprison.
Your rules impede.
Class warfare is the rule.
We have nothing left to lose.

Our resources are limited,
you laugh at our weakness.
Don't think us timid,
your end is our business.

We are legion, we are here.
our allies are everywhere.
We have a common enemy
and it is thee.

Embrace the rage.
Reject the logic.
Seek the solution
in armed revolution.

Our goals are simple.
Demolition is our goal.
Destroy the middle,
the top will implode.

The ashes will be our home,
little different from what is now.
The only difference is
you will be dead at our feet.
