When Men Become Truly Free
by Colin Ryan

There comes a times in the lives of men
When the ruthless and the criminally insane
Who rule the masses for their own gain
Make the fatal mistake of enjoying too much
Their psychopathic entertainment.
They lose control in their lust for blood
And take too far their need to tread men down
By destroying any sense of a secure life
And taking away each and every freedom
Stealing the last piece of wealth they possess
So they cannot even care for their own
Stifling their voice with laws and corruption
Beating them down with rule by force
Where no justice exists for those being played
And there is no direction left for men to turn.
When this insane game is taken this far
Comes the time when men have nothing left to lose.
This is the time when the minds of men are freed.
It is a time when man loses his fear of death.
This is the time when a man becomes invincible,
He becomes free to do whatever he must do
Without fear for his life or for his future.
He will take control of the destiny of the world
Away from the bloodied hands of the soulless.
Any action he takes he will take with a surety
That he must do something for he has no future.
So the act he chooses will be all the greater
For when faced with oblivion and with no way out
There is one thing this now fearless man will do.
He will take down as many of his oppressors with him
Gladly die in a selfless act to change the world's future.
This day is coming soon as it always does.
The perverse minds of evil always self destruct
As their addiction to our suffering can never be sated,
Exerting control for their paranoia and fear of men.
For every good man will take down these brutes.
Every free man will give up himself for his brothers.
For a man with nothing left becomes fully empowered
And he is the most unassailable weapon.
(C) 2010 Colin Ryan
What a fine poem for our times.

Colin- Next time I'm up your way, let me buy you a pint.

Well said, read and portrayed. I particularly liked the last lines -- the man with nothing left to lose becomes the most unassailable weapon against evil. That, and when he said, "When that day comes -- as it always does..." Yes, it always does. Despotism will out, but so will free minds and free will.

The last two words, "against evil", as narrated, go missing.
