A poem by: Ben Dunk.  June 2-3 1979

 

WHEREAS

 

Savage your breast in hunger

See the confines of subjugation

Banish all hope of tomorrow

And you may perceive the unjust body

Detained in prison

And what ‘bitterness’ ariseth

Out of the vicioused heart

Cleaving the mind from compassion

Rending the soul from brotherly communion

 

…..and why not; how else does change impart? One asks

But, it doth not!

So, rise up, the sane and free in surreptitious harmony

Clamour for brand new relations of truth

Exposure of affiliations secret

And, unquestionable impartial justice.
