Expect Us!

Heretic Productions brings you an extraordinary piece of Poetry by Bill Allyn. "Expect Us."

Expect Us

Once we were weak; but now we stand tall.
Millions of citizens, heeding the call.
Demanding our freedom, the birthright of all.
The Arab Spring turns to The American Fall.

We're the 99, and we'll never forgive.
We'll never forget how you've made us live.
Expect us at your door, prepare to defend!
The reign of the moneyed and privileged now ends.

Once we were few; now we grow by the hour.
The lamb sheds its mask—the emperor cowers.
The wolf bares her teeth, her hunger devours,
The gleaming skyscrapers, the ivory towers.

We're the 99, and we'll never forgive.
We'll never forget how you've made us live.
Expect us at your door, prepare to defend!
The world of the moneyed and privileged now ends.

There's no "job creators", a "trickle-down" bust.
And time's running out for your greed and your lust.
You've earned no respect, and squandered our trust.
From this day forward, you must expect us!

We're the 99, and we'll never forgive.
We'll never forget how you've made us live.
Expect us at your door, prepare to defend!
The reign of the moneyed and privileged now ends.
