Random Poem:

Egyptian revolution

We faced armored dragons,
Fire from above and pellets
embedded in unshattered ideals,
We gathered here in peace;
the opposite of weakness,
Unified voices electrifying
the heavens above.
We were invincible,
Inconceivably stubborn,
Surprising even ourselves
as we tore through the system,
Fear cowered after
the first broken bone
and fallen body,
We lay determined
even in death.
Today we are men of history,
Our names etched
by clicking remotes
and internet streams.
If pens are waiting
our blood is ready,
Spilled on roaring streets
and weeping pavements.
I won't tell you goodbye
And please don't cry,
Yes I am young,
Yet I've achieved in days
what men couldn't in lifetimes;
The people have spoken
Tyrants shall not sleep tonight.
