The Revolution MAG

By Anonymous

     The Revolution will, indeed, be broadcast
displayed in high definition on every wall
for children looking up from their games
and fat middle-aged men digging for another handful of chips
as faceless bodies in tattered clothing run past on screen
and a head is blown off to scattered but polite applause
Mom and Dad comment on the clarity and detail of the image
while little Junior stares in blank apathy
and fiery flashes are reflected in his jaded grey eyes
