A brief history of revolution

History is filled with
revolutions to the fuller, 
One greedy set, 
replacing another.  

Communist revolution:
for redistribution of money,
managed in reality,
equal distribution of poverty.

Political revolution:
when power addicted royalty,
got replaced by the power thirsty polity.

The ongoing capitalist revolution:
where power goes from dictatorial states,
to irresponsibly greedy corporates.

Militant Islam,
Naxal movement,
are one more attempt 
of the have-not's, 
but also of the really uneducated
unaware of history,  
blind, violent reactions, 
of depressed classes in misery.

A case exists, possibly, 
for replacing revolution 
with rebellion.
rebellion individually, 
against the darkness within.

like night turning,  
slowly with no hint,
ever so graciously, 
into magnificent daylight.

A new day could ring in,
without a single bullet fired, 
but from sharing the fiery 
consciousness within.


blacks have got,  
equal rights,
to sit in buses 
after they protested. 

one little issue, 
with democracy, is;
plants and animals, 
hills and canals,
cant protest, 
for their own rights. 

democracy from 
a birds-eye view 
is the screw up 
by the the people 
for the people 
of Nature

Surreal and the real

Great human achievements,
even so more fascinating is-
a glimpse of the rose flower,
flight of a bird, roar of the lion, 
music of a waterfall, shade of the tree.

Great clothes
even so more beautiful,
are the animals and leaves

Great riches
even then  more real is the emptiness

Herd and I

In a place full of bats,
Hanging upside down
It looks crazy sitting up straight
In a place full of corpses
It looks crazy to be dancing
