Makes us wanna holler
When they try to silence us
We’re done being quiet
Makes us wanna break free
When they try to hold us down
We’re done being still
Our movement is revelation
Our voice revolution
We’ve had enough
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | Quadrille #174: You Say You Want A Revolution
For this week’s Quadrille, Kim (Writing in North Norfolk) is prompting a revolution for a quadrille, a poem of exactly 44 words not including the title, but must include some form of the word “revolution”.
Here I give gentle nods to Gil Scott Heron (The Revolution Will Not Be Televised) and Marvin Gaye (Inner City Blues)
Day nineteen of National Poetry Writing Month
I could hear a powerful rebel yell as I read this poem and I love the sassy attitude, with a slight echo of ‘We don’t need no education’ in addition to the nods to Gil Scott Heron and Marvin Gaye.
Ah Pink Floyd, yes. Thanks,
💪🏼 Raivenne 💪🏼 ~ you go!
Great, we need some rebellious minds…
