Into The Lamp Of History
When, onto the streets the massed disavowed march
From their "Occupy" camps into the lamp of history,
Their's is of every walk of life found under the arch,
Who make daily toil tribute to their work's mastery:
Then, they join in an echoing voice the massive choir
Assembled Worldwide putting sound to the footsteps.
Unscripted, leaderless, message driven, forgiving prior
Allegiances to Madison Avenue's lusty driven preps :
And then, cracks within the cloistered Wall Street
Conclaves who hire blue coats for their protection.
Big money needs big results, billions verses speech ;
Words tug at heart and mind gaining true affection.
"The die is cast", an overwhelming thought adopted
By multitudes, succinct simplicity, never's co-opted.
