Against the Iron

Written by Cyt ap Nydden on .

I dread the lash of stick you’re holding

Yet I will walk.

Unconscious fall from stick you’re holding

Still I will walk.

You do not see the World is listening

You are condemned.

 

My body burns with gas you’re spraying

Yet I will shout.

Puking and crying with gas you’re spraying

Yet I must shout.

You do not care the World can smell you

You are condemned.

 

I fear to stand before your Iron

Yet I will stand.

Fear the crush beneath your Iron.

Yet I will stand.

You do not know the World is watching

You are condemned.

 

In peaceful protest at your brutality

I will walk.

calmly catalogue  your brutality

and I will shout.

Aginst your careless evil

I will stand.

The World knows

You are condemned.

I am reminded of that iconic image of the lone man in front of the tank in Tianemen Square. An evocative poem!

What must have been going through his mind as he stood before the tank. Two men, one with a cause and one with a tank.
