Revered Mettle

This is a poem for the revolutionaries in the Arab world (Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisia & Yemen). A testament to your continued strength in deposing corruption and oppressive leaders. I hope for your success.


If you invite to compare your artillery,

To my simple pen and word,

I will host your invitation,

I commit you to meet your Lord!

& behind this revered prose

Is something you fail to possess:

Fervour in abundance

Make your weapons seem much less.

Even if you paint the earth

With the blood inside my body,

Then you’ve only paved the way

For a part of revolution and history.

Because freedom is on the cusp

Of rattling your cage,

And I swear by the Almighty

You should never have written that page.

It will drive you to your borders

And walking on the brink,

So for each of you that passes,

Means that oppression is nearer extinct.
