Because injustice is the match,
And revolution is the fire;
Silence, the enabling wind;
Tyranny, the funeral pyre:
In time it ends in restoration;
Less injustice, just a little;
Life returns, just slightly better;
Each Estate is forced to settle.
Does this small mini-step repay
A generation drowned in blood?
Yet so goes progress through the cycle.
